SHEBOYGAN COUNTY (CBS 58) – A banquet hall and restaurant is destroyed following an early morning fire in Elkhart Lake.
Crews were called to Three Guys and a Grill East around 4:20 a.m.
One man who lives nearby went to area to see what was going on.
“It was a big fire, the flames were shooting 10 to 15 feet out of the roof," Ronald Theel said.
One of the owners of Three Guys and a Grill East tells CBS 58 the building is a total loss and the cause of the fire isn't known yet. The building was home to a banquet hall and full kitchen and bar.
“We do a lot of weddings, meetings, company picnics, graduations," Owner Scott McMurray said. "I mean everything from A-Z."
McMurray says the business is going to honor the events that were scheduled at the hall.
"We’re just thanking everybody for their help," he said. "I just want to be able to take care of the people we made commitments to, I mean we have brides that are having weddings."
McMurray said people in the community have already contacted him to offer up their facilities as replacement locations.
A captain with the Elkhart Lake Fire Department says the cause of the fire remains under investigation but is believed to have started in the bar area.
McMurray asks anyone who had an event planned to contact the business on their Facebook page or at their location at the Marsh Campground.
