CHICAGO -- A fire severely damaged a restaurant on the city's Northwest Side.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. Sunday at the The Elephant Thai Cuisine restaurant, located at 5348 W. Devon Ave, in Chicago's Edgebrook neighborhood.

Fire officials believe the fire started in the grease chute, between the restaurant and the beauty salon next door.
