The Jonesboro 911 Center reports a fire shortly before 9 this morning at Godsey’s Grill 203 South Main in Downtown Jonesboro.  The fire started on a porch add-on to the building in the alley between Main and Church.  The porch area contains Godsey’s smokers used to smoke meat.  Smoke from the fire made its way into the Godsey’s building, and the sprinkler system activated spraying water throughout the restaurant.  Fire officials on the scene say firemen were able to extinguish the blaze quickly.  The restaurant suffered water damage and also damage to the rear of the restaurant.  No word from restaurant owners about how long the fire would impact their business.  Pictures and video below.
