CALDWELL, Kan. (AP) -- Residents in a small south-central Kansas town say they hope a restaurant damaged by fire can reopen.

Investigators say the fire Thursday at Richard's Last Chance Bar and Grill in Caldwell started in the kitchen but the cause has not been determined. No one was in the building when the blaze broke out.

One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion. No one else was hurt.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/HCyfZb ) the town's 1,000 residents are hoping the restaurant returns. They say residents gathered at the bar and grill every day, and the business drew visitors from across south-central Kansas and north-central Oklahoma.

Jill Crumbliss, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Richard, says they are waiting to see how much their insurance will cover.
