KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Firefighters cut through the roof of Mama's 39th Street Diner to fight a fire early Wednesday morning.
When officers responded at 12:45 a.m., the diner was completely full of high pressure smoke.
The pressure built up inside the building, and the firefighters worried about a flash-bang.
Firefighters then cut a hole in the roof to let the heat escape.
Mama's Diner was not open at the time of the fire.
However Missy's B next door was open. Customers were quickly escorted out of the building.
Missy's B's was not damaged at all, but the small barber shop on the south end, as well as Mama's Diner were damaged.
No one was injured in the incident.
