Grill at Wendy’s in Vandalia malfunctions, causes fire

UPDATE @ 7:50 p.m.: A malfunctioning grill is the blame for the fire at the Wendy's in Vandalia that has shut down the business tonight and possibly the next few days. 

A Vandalia fire battalion chief tells us the fire also burned wiring behind the grill and that prompted the fire department to shut off the gas and electric service to the building. 

No one was injured in the fire.
