Our local McDonald's burned nearly to the ground last night. Reports are that the fire occurred at or about 10 p.m., but I don't remember sirens.
Lucy and I drove by to take a look today after my mother-in-law told us it had happened. Only a scorched shell was left, with smoke rising from the interior.
I'd be surprised if this were some kind of protest. Insurance? An angry employee? An accident? Negligence?
No one was injured, as far as we know. The gossip wheels are turning in this small town. We'll find out more tomorrow.
UPDATE: The fire occurred at 2:40 a.m., according to the local paper.
