Fire destroys restaurant in Columbia

Posted: Updated:

Crews found heavy smoke when they arrived on the scene of a restaurant fire in Columbia late Friday night.

According to Deputy Fire Chief Steven Cross, firefighters spent most of the evening battling the fire at Los Cobos restaurant on Nashville Highway.

It appeared the fire broke out about one hour after employees closed the restaurant, Cross said.

While the cause of the fire remained under investigation, Cross said it did not appear to be suspicious. "We're just really glad no firefighters or citizens were injured."

The restaurant was a total loss, Cross said.
