Cheney's Droopy Dog goes up in flames

CHENEY, Wash.- Fire officials in Cheney are working to determine what caused an attic fire at a restaurant in the city. The fire broke out just after 11:00 Monday night at the Droopy Dog's in the 2 block of West1st Avenue, that's the corner of J Street and 1st Ave.  

According to Cheney Fire Lieutenant Aaron Bollar, a passerby noticed smoke and flames coming from the building's roof and immediately called 911. When crews arrived at the restaurant, they saw visible flames coming from the roof. They gained access to the restaurant and managed to get the fire out before it spread to the rest of the business. Lt. Bollar says most of the damage from smoke and flames was contained to the attic. 

There was no one inside the restaurant at the time of the fire and Lt. Bollar says there are no injuries involved. There is a small apartment on the second floor of the restaurant, but it was not occupied at the time and Lt. Bollar says it isn't clear if anyone actually does live there.  

According to Lt. Bollar there is no official cause on the fire, but he says he's leaning toward an electrical malfunction. Lt. Bollar says he bases that determination on the location of the fire, in the attic with nothing else around except wires. A fire investigator was on scene early Tuesday morning, but Lt. Bollar says at this time the fire is not being investigated as suspicious.  

It's not clear whether the Droopy Dog will be open for business Tuesday.
