Jesus good Goddam fuck, what happened at the hibachi restaurant last night? Utter carnage, that’s what! The scene at Gary’s Sporting Goods & Hibachi Steakhouse in Fort Wayne, Indiana immediately became gruesome when an unnamed hibachi chef constructed a volcano with a sliced onion, then set it ablaze. What would normally be part of the routine turned chaotic, though, when the volcano wildly erupted, setting patrons on fire. Seven are dead and three are critically injured including the chef.
Eyewitnesses are reporting the eruption was akin to something they’d seen in an action movie. “There was a lot of fire, a lot of heat, and a lot of screaming,” said one eyewitness. “It looked like a scene right out of GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra.”

Gary Kepowicz, owner of the establishment, could not be reached for comment. On the restaurant’s Instagram page is a message indicating thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims.
Elise Liverpus, the spouse of the hibachi chef, posted this on Facebook:
“My husband did nothing wrong. He is currently in the ICU being treated for burns to his hands and face. He was getting ready to compete in the Hibachi Olympics and I suspect he was sabotaged by another chef at the restaurant. My husband takes all precautions when he cooks. I think someone switched out his rice wine with gasoline because hibachi chefs are known for their competitiveness.”
In the meantime, a bunch of people are dead and hurt. Six of the deceased were grandparents celebrating their love of Japanese food and Clint Eastwood’s politics.
