“Upon arrival, personnel found heavy smoke and fire coming from the business,” he said.
According to the restaurant's website, El Sombrero has been around for more than 30 years. There are multiple locations in Hall County as well as in Macon and Statesboro. The Browns Bridge Road location has been remodeled so many times, there are three roofs on it, according to Channel 2. That made it difficult for firefighters, who were still on the scene after noon as they worked to put out hot spots.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
