Popular barbeque restaurant damaged by fire

By Ashley Nix


WARRIOR, AL - Big Daddy's BBQ on North Main Street in Warrior was badly damaged by a fire.

It happened around 2pm Monday after the owner says the blaze started in the back

of the building, where the grills and all his supplies are located.


The owner, Paul Woodard, says the fire was so hot, he

attempted to open the back door, but realized he, employees, and customers needed to get out.

Woodard says it was a scary situation, but he's thankful no one was injured.


Thanks to quick response by the Warrior Fire Department,

the front of the building didn't suffer damage, but Woodard says the part of the

building that was destroyed is ,"where the magic happens."
