The responded to a fire at on Monday night around 9 p.m. and the eatery was closed on Tuesday.

According to Fire Chief William Warnock, there was a small electrical fire in the ceiling that was put out quickly with a portable extinguisher.

The plaster roof had wire mesh and over time the wire was rubbing up against the wire mesh, which made it in through the installation. Once the mesh came in contact with the piece of metal it energized that and started the fire in the wood, Warnock said.

The restaurant was evacuated and an electrical inspector and the Board of Health reported to the scene. No one was injured.
