Bangor fire officials are crediting a quick response for helping stop a fire from becoming much worse at a Bangor KFC on Friday night.

Several area fire departments were called to the KFC on Longview Drive just before 6.

We're told crews were able to get the fire under control shortly after getting on scene.

Officials believe the fire started outside the building and then worked its way inside.

"Our crews did a great job, I mean we were here in four minutes. So you can't get much better than that. Everybody was in the station and everything worked out really good and I can't say enough about our mutual aid on this hot day today. This is one of the first hot days we've had and to have a fire, these guys did an excellent job," said Chandler Corriveau, Bangor Assistant Fire Chief.

No one was hurt.

The State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause.
