The Whataburger near Waco’s Richland Mall was closed for a short time Friday morning after smoke filled the building.
Firefighters were sent at around 7:55 a.m. to the Whataburger on Waco Drive at Loop 340 after a caller reported the building was filling with smoke.
When the first units arrived they found the employees and customers had evacuated the building.
