Station 4 was dispatched to the area of 1000 South State Street for the smoke condition in the area. As more reports came into the 911 center, the source of smoke was found to be coming from the New Century Buffet in the Shopping Plaza. Chief 4B arrived and reported the heavy smoke condition coming from the structure and requested Engine 2 (Chinchilla) into the scene. Engine 4 arrived and went to work locating the seat of the fire and ventilating the smoke in the building. Ladder 4 was sent to the roof to help with ventilation. Engine 2 assisted Engine 4 with ventilation and overhaul. The fire was found to be a meat dryer in the kitchen of the restaurant and was extinguished with a Dry-Chem extinguisher. Units operated for about 45 minutes.
