Ten vehicles caught fire on the west side of Oklahoma City as a wildfire broached the parking lot of a local restaurant Monday afternoon, authorities said.

The Chick-Fil-A near Interstate 40 and MacArthur Boulevard is closed as of 2 p.m., according to authorities.

A spokesperson for the Oklahoma City Fire Department told News 9 that 13 Chick-Fil-A employees were checked out for smoke inhalation, three taken to a nearby hospital. All the vehicles that caught fire belonged to Chick-Fil-A employees.

Fire officials said this started as a grass fire that went into the restaurant parking lot, driven by gusty winds.
