A popular Mexican restaurant in Radcliff was destroyed by fire early Sunday morning.
Crews were called to Las Margaritas on Dixie Boulevards about 4:30 a.m.
Assistant Chief Bob Mahanna said it took more than three hours to control the fire. Five trucks and 20 firefighters from Radcliff and Vine Grove fought the flames. There were two aerials fighting the fire from above the restaurant.
One fire fighter was sent to the hospital and is expected to recover.
Owner Ignacio Ramon has owned Las Margaritas since 2009. He arrived at the restaurant around 5 a.m. and found his building engulfed in flames.
Las Margaritas is a restaurant and night club. There was an event Saturday night and everyone cleared out about an hour before the fire started.
Assistant Chief Mahanna said the extensive damage means there will be a lengthy investigation to determine a cause.
