The McDonald’s near 21st and Ridge has been closed due to a fire since Saturday but should reopen by this Saturday.

A fryer bank overheated, and what normally would have been a small fire that could be put out quickly ended up lasting longer and doing more damage because of a faulty fire suppression system.

The restaurant is waiting on new equipment before reopening, but it should be in place by the weekend.
