Kitchen fire closes diner in heart of downtown Denver
DENVER -- At the Denver Diner on Colfax and Speer Monday, owner George Skordos and his wait staff were inside the diner—which caught on fire early Sunday morning—cleaning up dishes, with food still on them, which were left on tables when the evacuation began. “This was bar-rush as we call it,” said Michelle Carter. “We had all of our tables filled and there was a line in the lobby, we were all set for a busy morning, then flames forced all of us outside.”
