Embers from a wildfire burned a part of a well known restaurant in Pitt County authorities say.
For the second time in the past year, the smokehouse at the Skylight Inn Barbecue Restaurant in Ayden went up in flames Thursday.
The smokehouse where the meat is cooked is the only part of the restaurant the fire damaged. The main dining area is still intact. The Ayden fire department says the wind started the trouble.
The Skylight Inn does not know the full extent of the damage, but they hope to re-open in a couple of days.
