A brief fire burned at Slap Ya Momma's restaurant in Biloxi.

At 5 p.m., the Biloxi Fire Department received a call about an electrical fire at the old Slap Ya Mama's BBQ at the corner of Highway 90 & Veterans Ave.

Units from station 4 right down the street responded within minutes to find light smoke coming from the back of the building.

The fire was quickly extinguished. Mississippi Power also responded to cut power to the effected part of the building as a safety precaution.

Slap Ya Mama's was in the process of moving to 1785 Beach Blvd. on Highway 90. The restaurant will reopen this Wednesday at the new location.  No one was injured.
