Fazoli’s management says it will be two to three weeks before the restaurant can reopen in the wake of a Monday morning fire.
Manager Tesla Burger said a contractor indicated it would take that long to make repairs to the 703 Third Ave. building.
The Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded at 8:06 a.m. Monday after employees discovered a fire inside an exterior wall near the building’s south entrance.
Firefighters had to remove exterior wall coverings from past remodels to extinguish the fire, which likely was caused by a discarded cigarette, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang.
Damage was estimated at $7,000.
