DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - Memphis firefighters were called to extinguish a kitchen fire at the Blue Plate Cafe at Court Square in Downtown Memphis, Memphis Fire Fighters Association Local 1784 said.

The fire was first reported at around 3:45 p.m. The fire was under control some 15 minutes later.

Gray and brown smoke was seen billowing throughout the downtown corridor on FOX13 News' SkyFOX weather camera.
