On Tuesday, investigators confirmed that the fire at the Hibachi Grill on Friday, May 23, started with kitchen grease on a stove.

Flames went up into the ventilation system, and then spread to the roof from there.

The restaurant is still closed while repairs are being made. So far there's no word on how long that will take.
