Friday, February 8, 2013
The investigation into a fire Wednesday night that destroyed the Burger King Restaurant in Tully suggests an electrical malfunction may have sparked the blaze.
Investigators say a problem with an exhaust fan is the likely cause of the fire.
Around 8 o’clock workers at the restaurant on Route 80 reported a fire, everyone was able to get out safely, but the fire spread quickly A natural gas line feeding the building was stuck open which kept responding firefighters from getting to the fire sooner.
The building was severely damaged, at this point the owners have said they are awaiting word from insurance adjusters as to whether they will repair or rebuild the restaurant.
