BRISTOL, Va. (WJHL) — An early-morning fire destroyed a restaurant and kitchen supplier Sunday, according to a release from the Bristol, Virginia Fire Department.
Fire crews responded to a structure fire on Commonwealth Avenue at 2:30 a.m., the release said, and were met with large flames engulfing the roof.
The Bristol, Tennessee Fire Department and Bristol Life Saving Crew arrived to help battle the blaze as the Bristol, Virginia Police Department blocked traffic until public works could barricade the road.
Firefighters determined that the flames were emerging from a space between the ceiling and the roof and entered from the building’s top to extinguish the fire from above.
The fire destroyed the building, the release said, and burned several large holes through the roof. The building and merchandise also received water damage.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
There were no injuries from the incident.
