A grease fire in a kitchen at the Port Byron Service Plaza on the New York State Thruway Christmas night forced the closure of the travel plaza, according to state police.
The New York State Police who patrol the Thruway said the plaza will be closed overnight. Fire crews, including the Montezuma Fire Department, were on the scene until just before 10 p.m. No injuries were reported. The kitchen suffered heavy smoke damage.
State police said the plaza's gas station is still open and information will be sent out if the plaza will be closed beyond Christmas night.
