Investigators: Peaden's Not Arson

Investigators looking into the fire at Peaden's Grill in Greenville say they have ruled out arson as the cause and believe it was electrical in nature, but for now have listed it as undetermined.

Chief Doug Branch with Greenville Fire and Rescue says they have finished their investigation and believe it began in the ceiling or attic. Branch says it would do more damage to investigate further so they let Peaden's insurance company take over.

Owner Terry Peaden says they are planning to rebuild and that process has already begun.

Peaden says this grill has been in his family since 1957 and there's been an outpouring of people saying they miss the restaurant already-- and that this fire has been a big shock to the Greenville community.
