A deep fat fryer cooking fish and french fries caught fire Friday night at the Culver's restaurant in Carpentersville, authorities said.

Crews were called to the restaurant at 8000 Miller Road at 6:32 p.m., and they were able to put the grease fire out within 10 minutes, according to Lt. Chris Bolliger of the Carpentersville Fire Department.

Patrons and staff were evacuated, and no injuries were reported.

The restaurant was temporarily closed for cleanup, but had reopened later Friday night, said Serena Michels, the restaurant's general manager.
