Dumpster fire damages downtown restaurant

The Nitty Gritty restaurant at 223 N. Frances St. sustained fire damage early Sunday morning, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report. While the cause of the fire has not been determined, it originated in a dumpster at the rear of the business. The fire caused the evacuation of more than 70 customers, damaged the restaurant, spread to an adjacent vehicle, and closed an area downtown for several hours. No injuries were reported.
