— 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.

    I understand that Faye is re-opening soon on Hwy 97 in the log cabin that used to be Rev. Wayne's. I wish her nothing but the best. You are so right eddiewan5150, Faye is a special lady and it was a special place. 2thec, if you've never eaten there then please do not judge or assume.

    No, 2thec, it wasn't 5-star food. It was good old fried, clog-your-arteries country cooking and it was wonderful! It's amazing that Faye has kept it going the way she has for so long after her husband's passing. She is a special lady and I hope she gets it back on the ground. My daughter almost cried when she found out. It was a special place.

    I've never eaten there but hopefully the owners can rebuild and bring the resturant back.

    Hey 2thec..if you have to start your comment with, "Don't want to be insulting" it is a good bet it is going be insulting.

    Don't want to be insulting, but if this place served "some of the best food" to you, then you need to eat at different places than you're now eating.

    I'm so sad, they had some of the best food! I love and will miss that place!

    I just hate this. Truly was a landmark. Praying for Faye and her employees. Such a loss!
