A McDonald’s restaurant in Canton needs “extensive repairs” after a fire on Monday, officials said.

Around 9 p.m., firefighters arrived at 41 Washington St. and saw “heavy smoke coming from the building,” Wendell Robery, chief of the Canton Fire Department, said in a press release.

“Crews subsequently discovered fire inside the walls of the front entrance,” he said. “Crews then opened the outside walls where they found that the fire reached about halfway up the inside of the wall.”

The building had already been evacuated and no one was hurt, officials said.

Crews controlled the fire by around 9:45 p.m. The building sustained smoke damage and will be closed for repairs, officials said.


The cause of the fire is under investigation. Representatives of the restaurant could not be reached for comment.
