Fire at Wendy's in Rib Mountain

RIB MOUNTAIN, WI (WTAQ) - Fire has destroyed a Wendy's restaurant near Wausau. 

Firefighters were called around 10:50 p.m. Thursday to the fast food place located in a large shopping zone west of Wausau in the town of Rib Mountain.  

Employees saw the fire and were able to escape. Everyone got out safely, and nobody was hurt. 

Rib Mountain assistant fire chief John Lauer said the blaze started somewhere in the kitchen and then shot up through the roof. Aerial units spent much of the night knocking down the fire. 

The exact cause remains under investigation.
