HAWAII NATIONAL PARK, Hawaii (AP) - Both restaurants in Hawaii National Park’s Volcano House are closed because of a kitchen fire that sent a hotel employee to the hospital.

The National Park Service is investigating the cause of Tuesday’s blaze, which prompted the closure of The Rim restaurant and Uncle George’s Lounge. The Volcano House hotel remains open.

The restaurants are expected to reopen on Thursday.

The park service says a 42-year-old hotel employee suffered burns to his upper arms.
