by Keith Stewart
A blaze that lasted nearly two hours ravaged a restaurant in Sullivan Tuesday morning.
The Red Apple Family Restaurant caught fire shortly before 8:30 a.m. Tuesday according to Sullivan fire captain Chris Wright.
Emergency personnel were paged out at 8:23 a.m. with the first fire company arriving at 8:25 a.m. Initial observations by emergency personnel included heavy dark smoke and fire coming out the back of the restaurant.
The first company entered the building only to discover zero visibility and that the fire was actually located above them in the attic.
