Weekend Fire Forces Aunt Gin’s Restaurant to Close
With everything going on in the world right now, being a small business owner certainly has its difficulties- Especially the restaurant industry.
Well, over the weekend, things got even harder for one local establishment. Aunt Gin's restaurant on Route 17 in Whitefield caught fire in their kitchen during the night on Friday.
According to the restaurant's Facebook page, crews were able to save the building and get the fire extinguished. However, due to the fire, the restaurant will remain closed for the time being.
There is no word yet on the extent of the damage or how long Aunt Gin's will remain closed for. Our thoughts go out to the owners and certainly hope this is just a minor setback and that they're able to come back quickly.
We will continue to provide updates on this story as they become available.
There was a fire at the restaurant during the night. No details yet, but we are closed for the time being.
Thank you very much to the fire crews (from 5 towns) who came out to help us today.
