The Lafayette Fire Department is on the scene of a fire at Mel's Diner in Lafayette.

KATC's Chris Welty reports that there doesn't appear to be any damage to building from the outside, but firefighters were seen venting the roof of the building.

By the looks of it, it appears that a lot of water was thrown on this fire.

We will continue to follow this developing story and we encourage you to avoid the area. A part of Johnston St. is closed at this time.
