Thursday night

FIREFIGHTERS RESPONDED to stove fire at the Wendy's restaurant in Wilkesboro Thursday night.

The Wendy’s restaurant on Collegiate Drive in Wilkesboro remained closed late Friday morning as cleanup work continued due to a fire Thursday night.

Wilkesboro Fire Chief Jason Smithey said firefighters were dispatched to the blaze about 9:30 p.m. Thursday and found a grill on fire. Smithey said it was extinguished with firefighting equipment used for grease fires.

He said there was no damage other than loss of food, but the restaurant would likely remain closed Friday.

The Wilkesboro, Millers Creek and Broadway fire departments, with five fire trucks and about 30 firefighters, responded.
