Dramatic New Video Shows Drive-In Burning to the Ground

Posted: Updated:

GRANDVIEW, WA. -- This is a story that our viewers first told us about on Facebook and we're now learning that neighbors heard multiple loud explosions as the fire engulfed L&L Drive-In in Grandview.

One resident shared with us a dramatic Facebook video of the fire. You can hear the loud explosions as the L&L Drive-In, a restaurant that has been in Grandview for decades, burns to the ground.

Around 9 o'clock Friday the restaurant went up in flames. Witnesses say it took only minutes for the building to burn down but hours to put out the fire. We talked to a neighbor and she says when the fire started, it was so intense she decided to evacuate.

"I saw smoke, fire everywhere and that's when I went and grabbed my daughter and left," Bianca Figueroa said. "I didn't feel safe enough."

The owner of the drive through posted on Facebook Saturday morning:

"(I'm) thankful things happen for a reason. Thanks for everyone's love and support. A special thank you to my step daughter and all Grandview Police and Fire Department."

There is no official word as to the cause of the fire. Our attempts to reach the Grandview Fire Department were unsuccessful.
