Firefighters rescue dozens of people from a popular Awhatukee Restaurant that went up in flames Friday night.  Fire Captain WIll Benedict says the owner noticed smoke coming from the A-C unit on top of the roof which sparked the blaze.  About 80 firefighters were called to the scene to knock out the fire and evacuate about 50

customers.  After a several hours, crews were able to “get a stop on it” and prevent it from “burning to the ground.”   The building was saved and no one was injured in the fire.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
