Crews are removing debris and working to remediate the condition of the burned out Burger King restaurant near N. 85th St. and W. Brown Deer Rd., according to Alderwoman Chantia Lewis.
“I am pleased to see crews working to remove debris and beginning the process of making the property usable once again,” Alderwoman Lewis said. The restaurant caught fire on May 20, causing $463,000 in damage to the restaurant building and $218,000 in damage to the contents of the restaurant (fixtures, furniture, machinery, food, etc.).
Authorities believe the fire started accidentally after someone discarded a cigarette that was still burning.
“I believe the site will be the Phoenix and will rise from the ashes to again be a viable location for a successful business,” she said.
