Firefighters battle restaurant fire

SMITHFIELD

The restaurant is located at 3506 US Highway 301 South and was heavily damaged by the fire.

Investigators said the cause was likely accidental.

The business is closed on Sundays. A passing deputy saw the fire and reported it.

This isn't the first time popular restaurant has burned. It happened in 1981, but reopened. Owners are awaiting word from their insurers to learn if the building can be repaired or rebuilt.
