Fire damages On the Border restaurant in Cary

A fire caused heavy damage to On the Border restaurant on Walnut Street early Thursday, and fire investigators have begun trying to identify the cause.

The fire was reported about 12:30 a.m., a town spokeswoman said, and firefighters found heavy smoke when they arrived at the building at 1102 Walnut St., across the street from Cary Towne Center and Cary High School.

Firefighters were able to put out the blaze quickly, she said, but some remained on the scene through the night in case the fire flared up again.
