Longview restaurant burns to the ground overnight

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 - 11:36am

A Longview eatery was destroyed by a fire early Wednesday morning.

Unc's BBQ, located on the 2300 block of Highway 80, was reported ablaze at around 1:08 a.m. When firefighters made it to the scene, flames were shooting from the roof area.

The Longview and White Oak Fire Departments began an "interior attack" on the fire, but were eventually pushed outside after the roof caved, according to White Oak fire officials.

The fire marshal is currently on scene investigating the cause of the blaze. A preliminary investigation shows the fire originating from the attic.

Some of the eatery's equipment was able to be salvaged.
