WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Fire crews were on the scene of a structure fire in West Lafayette.
The call came in from a passer-by just before 8:00 this morning that the building which used to house Spurlock's on North River Road was on fire.
News 18 spoke with the building's owner Matt O'Niell in August. He said he was developing the former Capp and Gino's and Spurlock's West site into a new restaurant.
O'Niell is based in Bloomington and was not in town during the fire.
West Lafayette Fire Chief Tony Schutter said his building manager was at the scene.
"To my knowledge they have been here working on the building," Schutter said. "We will assess from there what might have caused it. At this time it's still undetermined."
No one was hurt in the fire.
West Lafayette Fire Chief Tim Heath said the cause of the fire was accidental. He says workers were finishing up the floors in the building when a tarnish rag combusted.
