Steakhouse Reopens After Fire

(Michigan City, IN) - A popular chain restaurant in Michigan City has reopened after a fire this week.  The Sunday night fire was at Texas Corral on U.S. 421 near Interstate 94. 


According to investigators, the exterior of the building caught fire and, fortunately, the flames did not spread to the inside of the structure for the most part.


Michigan City Fire Department Public information officer Nicholas Pabon said an employee outside saw smoke.   Had the fire not been noticed quickly, he said it’s very possible the entire building could have been lost.


"With fires, minutes matter. In about 3 to 4 minutes from the time of dispatch, crews arrived on scene and 16 minutes later we had the fire knocked down.  The quick and aggressive actions from the crews saved this business," Pabon said. 


The cause of the fire is still under investigation, Pabon said.
