Firefighters say the kitchen wall caught on fire after a commercial stove was ignited.

No one was hurt and crews contained the blaze to the kitchen and attic areas. Damage is estimated at $75,000.

Nearly 20 firefighters with the East Fork Fire and Paramedic District responded to the blaze along with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and the Nevada Highway Patrol.

A portion of State Route 206 was closed for about two hours while crews fought the blaze.

The Genoa Station Grill and Bar is *not the historic Genoa bar built in 1853. This building is about 18 years old and was renovated last year by its owners.
