Fire Destroys Longview Restaurant

An early Sunday morning fire has destroyed a Longview restaurant. Several fire units and 2 ladder units converged on the El Chico restaurant at 4th Street and Loop 281 just after 8:00 this morning. Firefighters hoped to knock the blaze out from the inside. As crews scrambled and pumped water on the flames, winds began to fan the blaze from the top and firefighters were nearly caught inside as they fought the blaze from the ground. The blaze was allowed to burn itself out as crews sealed the area to traffic. No one was hurt in the fire, and investigators are still looking into what may have caused it.
