— A restaurant badly damaged by an out-of-control dump truck will go up in smoke this weekend.

On Saturday, firefighters will torch Peggy's Seafood in Harnett County as part of a training exercise.

One person died last month when the truck slammed into the restaurant.

Right after the accident, the restaurant's owner announced he would not rebuild. The owner's son was killed in the crash.
