An early morning fire torched a number of businesses in the northern hills.

According to Meade County Emergency Management’s Facebook page, firefighters responded to a structure fire at Sturgis’ Weimer’s Diner and Donuts approximately 2:25 a.m. Wednesday.

The fire spread to multiple businesses before it could be contained. Fire officials say all structures involved suffered significant damage.

Investigators believe a malfunctioning AC unit ignited the restaurant, but a cause has yet to be determined.

No one was injured as a result of the fire.
