TULSA, OK -- The owners of a popular Tulsa barbeque restaurant are making plans to rise from the ashes of a devastating fire.

The News On 6 was told Wednesday's fire at Knotty Pine barbeque in West Tulsa started in the pit.

Manager Priscilla Hutchinson says when they opened it to put in more meat the air fueled an intense fire they just couldn't put out.

Paul Woodard, owner of the Knotty Pine, says the fire just makes him sick, but tells us despite the damage, he will reopen.

"We're ready to get rebuilding," Woodard said.

"Yeah, we're ready to start anytime," Priscilla Hutchinson, manager, said. "Just as soon as we get the okay to do, we're going."

Workers spent Thursday cleaning out what didn't burn up in Wednesday's fire.

Woodard says Knotty Pine has been in his family since 1952, evolving from a beer joint into a barbeque joint over the years.
