The Taco Bell in Ballwin after severe fire damage.

A Taco Bell in Ballwin was destroyed by fire early this morning.

According to Fox 2 News, drivers driving past the 1300 block of Manchester around 3 a.m. noticed flames in the fast food restaurant. The fire service arrived and discovered that the roof and interior of the building had been badly damaged by the fire.

KSDK reported that firefighters extinguished the fire just after 4 a.m.

No injuries have been reported. Ballwin police said on Facebook that the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

After learning about the fire, the owner of two nearby restaurants advised any Taco Bell employees who had been temporarily out of work as a result of the fire to contact him.

“It’s in our neighborhood and we know there are a lot of younger people working in the area,” said John Marciano, the owner of Lazy River Grill in Manchester and Yellow Stone Cafe in Chesterfield.

“We can always use anyone who needs a job in between,” he says.

Marciano says that since his companies posted the call on social media, the response has been “huge” and they expect to hire new employees soon.
