CAYCE, S.C. (WIS) - Multiple agencies were at Red Lobster on Knox Abbot Drive on Wednesday morning after a fire broke out.

The fire happened around 6:40 a.m. A manager at Red Lobster called the Cayce Fire Department and reported the fire, according to Cayce Department of Public Safety officials.

WIS received reports that the road was completely closed and officials were re-routing traffic.
