Officials: Arson caused restaurant blaze

March 12, 2012

Fire officials say accelerants were used in a blaze that destroyed a Sherrills Ford restaurant more than nine months ago.

It took five departments and about 85 firefighters to put out the blaze that was first reported around midnight.


At the time, fire officials were unsure if the blaze, which occurred only a half-mile from the nearest fire station, was caused by arson or some other cause.
