Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department officials are investigating a small fire that occurred at the Cheddar’s restaurant located at 1829 Old Fort Parkway just after 12:00 noon on Monday.
According to Fire & Life Safety Specialist Dwajuan Howse, it appears that the fire started on the roof of the building over the kitchen area. “The exact cause is unknown at this time,” said Howse. “It is believed to be unintentional.”
Crews arrived on scene to a small amount of smoke coming out of the shingles on the roof. Acting Battalion Chief Kurt McMahan said there was very little fire damage. Howse agreed and added that there was no structural damage and the restaurant was able to remain open for business.
