Lone Cedar Burns Down

Wow. drmellow, ccohoon, olga_ukraine and I just ate lunch at Lone Cedar on Sunday, before heading home from the beach. We also celebrated Grandmom & Pop's 60th wedding anniversary there in October 2005, complete with a visit from Sen. Basnight himself.

Two-Alarm Fire Claims Landmark Restaurant

Basnight's Lone Cedar restaurant, owned by Sen. Marc Basnight and his family, burned to the ground early Tuesday. Nags Head Lt. Det. Kevin Brinkley said a passer-by reported the fire at about 12:48 a.m. At the scene, Basnight said that he received a call in Raleigh at about 1 a.m. He said, “I was relieved that no one had been hurt, and it happened at a time when it wasn't full of customers. We can put the restaurant back and we will.” Brinkley said that at present there is no indication of how the fire started. As is routine in such fires, Nags Head Public Safety will ask the State Bureau of Investigation to help determine the cause. Damage is estimated to exceed $1 million.

That's so sad I loved going there whenever we were that direction.
