GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenwood County firefighters are investigating a fire at Sports Break on Montague Avenue that broke out Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators tell us the restaurant was closed because of the weather, but one worker was still inside, getting ready for the dinner service. They say the worker smelled smoke and was able to get out in time.

When firefighters arrived, they say they could see flames shooting from the building. They say it took them about 30 minutes to put out.

Investigators believe the fire started near a fireplace at the front of the restaurant, but the cause is still under investigation.

We're told no one was hurt.

The owner says he will rebuild.
