UPDATE: Fire Crews Still On Scene Of Mason County Restaurant Fire

UPDATE - 8:24

Several crews are still on the scene of a restaurant fire in Mason County.

The Pere Marquette Fire Chief says the Applebee's on US-10 in Ludington is a complete loss.

As of now, fire fighters believe flames started in the restaurant's kitchen around 4:00 this morning.

Frigid temperatures caused problems for fire crews as they tried to put the flames out -- forcing them to leave water running to keep hoses from freezing up.

Crews brought in aerial trucks to fight the fire from above after the building's roof collapsed.

A fire marshall will visit the scene Monday to continue the investigation.
