Krystal’s Restaurant, in Scottsboro, is shut down after a fire Thursday morning.

Deputy Chief Jon Lee, of the Scottsboro Fire Department, said a fire crew responded to a call around 4:45 a.m.

Lee said the fire department is investigating the incident, but it appears the fire is electrical-related.

“It wasn’t in the cooking area,” said Lee. “There was heavy smoke throughout the building. There is a lot damage of heat and smoke.”

Lee said insurance adjusters were set to meet with Krystal’s Friday. Lee said he didn’t know if the building could be repaired or if the restaurant will have to rebuild.

“The good thing is no one was hurt,” he added.

The correct name of this fast food restaurant is Krystal. I enjoy eating at Krystal occasionally when I am in Scottsboro and hate to hear about the recent fire.
