Iqaluit's Big Racks Barbecue catches fire

Nunavut's office of the fire marshal is investigating after a well-known, take-out restaurant in Iqaluit caught fire Tuesday morning, according to a city press release.

The fire started at Big Racks Barbecue around 7:30 a.m. There were 16 firefighters on site and the fire was out later Tuesday morning. 

"The crews ... quickly knocked down the fire inside the building," states the city news release.

It is not yet clear how extensive the damage is, or how the fire will impact the business's other location at the local Aquatic Centre.

No one inside the building and no one was injured in the fire, according to the release.
