Just seeing the pictures gives us the shakes wondering where in the world we are going to go to get our fix for chili-cheese-bacon covered tater tots. Or a cheeseburger wrap. Or a non-kids-menu Corn Dog and Grilled Cheese.
A report by WLTX says an early morning fire was put out at The Salty Nut Cafe on Green Street in Five Points and officials say the damage, although not destroying the building, did cause thousands of dollars in damage which would take months to repair.
Authorites say there was heavy black smoke when firefighters arrived at 4:30 Friday morning and the building is totally destroyed on the inside.
Chief Jenkins said the last employee left at 2:00 a.m. and what happened between that time and 4:30 a.m. is not clear. The building didn’t have a sprinkler system which is what aided in the total damage of the inside of the restaurant.
Luckily, no injuries have been reported, other than the residual effects not having our favorite guilty-pleasures.
