An early morning fire on Monday caused heavy damage to Planet Burger Restaurant located in the Legacy Shopping Center in west Fort Worth. Owner Raul Lomeli said the fire was electrical and that the restaurant is hoping to be back open in 2-4 weeks. 

“We’ll be back open as soon as we can get everything repaired,”  Lomeli said.

Multiple units from the Fort Worth Fire Department were on scene as firefighters attacked the fire from the ground and the roof using Quint ladder trucks.

Workers were already on scene later in the day making repairs.
