NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Crews responded to a fire at popular SoBro restaurant Husk early Thursday morning.
Firefighters were called to the restaurant, located at 37 Rutledge St., around 12:30 a.m.
Three employees were inside the restaurant when they heard an electrical surge and smelled smoke, according to Husk’s general manager.
Fire investigators believe the fire started in a storage room before moving up a wall into the second story of the restaurant.
Crews were able to contain the fire to those two areas but told News 2 damage to the back room is significant.
The fire rekindled around 5 a.m. and crews returned to the scene.
The fire was apparently caused by the failure of the main service line to the restaurant which in turn overloaded the electrical panels.
A fire inspector at the restaurant said the fire could have rekindled because the building has been rebuilt so many times, embers may have got in between a new wall and an old wall.
It is unknown when the restaurant will reopen to the public.
