Local Restaurant Burns Overnight

Pockets of smoke could still be seen this morning at 8:00 am after a fire destroyed a structure at 190
This was the scene as firefighters fought the blaze
at 190 Stockyard Rd.
Stockyard Road in North Louisville. Located at the intersection of Hwys 25 and 15, the large structure most recently known as J R's Restaurant looks to be a total loss. Built in the early 1970's as a sale barn, the property has
been home to several restaurants and business ventures over the last few years. The restaurant was currently not in operation.

Details are still sketchy at this time but firefighters were called to the scene in the very early morning hours on October 31.
