Fire destroys Lancaster-area restaurant

A fire Saturday night destroyed a restaurant in Paradise Township near Lancaster, Pa., that had closed after a  fire in 2008. The Garden Gate Diner at 3105 Lincoln Highway East, formerly the Wagon Wheel Restaurant and the Route 30 Family Restaurant, was the scene of the two-alarm blaze, as seen in the photo from Lancaster Online.

Another article reported that a rooftop cooling unit crashed through the ceiling into the dining room. More than a dozen fire companies responded to the scene. The older section of the building, which includes the kitchen and counter area, is standing but sustained smoke and water damage; the newer section to the west, which includes the main dining room, collapsed in the fire and was cleared by fire crews.

    I am just glad that the fire company got there on time, but how does a unit just fall through as ceiling maybe the building inspectors should be responsible.
