Sharpsburg, N.C. — More than 40 firefighters battled a blaze at The Sharpsburg Restaurant on U.S. Highway 301 Sunday, but the Nash County eatery couldn't be saved from the flames.
Authorities called it a total loss.
Fire crews were called to the scene around 5:15 p.m. and took about 45 minutes to extinguish the fire. Four different fire departments responded, authorities said.
The restaurant is closed on Sundays, so no one was inside. No injuries were reported.
Authorities were still trying to determine what sparked the fire.
