PLATTEVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in Platteville continue to investigate a weekend fire that caused at least a half-million dollars in damage to a Culver's restaurant.
Police said they were notified early Saturday morning by an alarm company that said a motion detector was tripped.
Fire Chief David Izzard said the smoke from the blaze apparently trigged the motion detector. Nobody was in the restaurant at the time.
Officials said it took about six hours to get the fire under control, and units kept working to put out hot spots.
The chief said the blaze appeared to have started in the restaurant's kitchen.
