A popular South Tulsa restaurant was evacuated after catching on fire during the dinner rush on Wednesday.  It happened at the Silver Flame restaurant at 61st and Sheridan.

The Tulsa Fire Department says a driver at that busy intersection noticed the building on fire and called 911.

Restaurant workers started evacuating the building and everyone made it out safely.

Firefighters say the flames quickly spread to the attic.

EMSA had to treat one firefighter for a heat-related problem but he is expected to be okay.

It's not clear yet what caused the fire.

This is the second time a fire has damaged the restaurant.  In July 2010, a fire closed the restaurant for several months.  It reopened in September 2010.
