A fire destroyed a Montgomery County Restaurant Saturday afternoon.
Fire officials were called to The Valley Forge Beef and Ale on South Trooper Road in Lower Providence Township around 12:30. Upon arrival the first floor of the building was filled with smoke.
The fire started in the basement where firefighters had trouble ventilating the area. The fire made its way from the basement all the way to the third floor and through the roof of the building.
The blaze took over four hours and 100 fire fighters to get under control.
There were about two dozen people in the restaurant when the blaze started, but no one was injured.
No cause has been determined, an investigation will start Monday.
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
