Fire prompts evacuation of Raleigh Bojangles'

Posted June 2, 2008

— A fire Monday afternoon forced dozens of people out of a Bojangles' restaurant in Raleigh.

There were no reported injuries.

The fire broke out in the kitchen shortly before 2:30 p.m. at the restaurant at 3808 Western Blvd.

Fire crews had to close two of three lanes of westbound Western Boulevard.

The restaurant did have smoke damage, and it was not immediately clear whether the restaurant would reopen for business Monday.

    Isn't there a song out called Mr. Bojangles?

    Is it pronounced Bo Han Gles or Bo Jang les?

    I wonder if they tried to use the tea to put the fire out. Oh no wait...The tea is on them. Hah hah hah. (Ya, know the new commerical....the tea is on us.) :-)

    Haha I bet RFD worked extra hard to save the Bo'. They all love to eat there, and would hate for it to burn down....I bet they get free tailgate specials now.

    There's always somethin' happenin' at The Bo'.

    I can't tell you the number of times I ate at that Bo back when I was in college. Good thing it didn't go up in flames. It'd be a shame if it burned down.
