According to Hill's majority owner and managing partner, Ellis Winstanley, the fire appears to have started in layers of roofing over the banquet hall. At the time we spoke this morning, he said the kitchen and dining rooms were undamaged but most of the damage was to the memorabilia-filled party room. Once the damage has been completely assessed, Winstanley will have a clearer picture about how long it will take to clean up the restaurant and get permission to re-open, but he's hoping to be up and running to feed that good Samaritan by Thanksgiving Day. We'll keep you posted.
