Fire damaged Cannon’s Drive In restaurant early Tuesday morning that has the restaurant shut down indefinitely.

Firefighters answered a call at 12:11 a.m. Tuesday to the restaurant at 409 Trade Street and found the kitchen on fire. Within 30 minutes firefighters had the fire under control and stopped it from spreading.

The restaurant was closed and no one was hurt, according to reports. The fire remains under investigation.

Cannon said the business had about 10-15 employees. He said he will operate out of a food trailer Wednesday and expects to open the restaurant within two months.

Throughout Tuesday friends and employees were helping with the cleanup.

It was two years ago when Cannon’s father, Virgil, died and left the restaurant to Scotty. The restaurant was closed for about eight months before Scotty reopened it.

The restaurant became a popular restaurant destination, as it was when Virgil had celebrities stop by before playing in shows and concerts.

Scotty said the refurbished restaurant served about 200 people a day.
