WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - The Rib Mountain Wendy's is a total loss after an overnight fire.

Dispatch called fire crews out to the store just before 11pm Thursday night for a report of a fire. Three departments responded to the store, where flames could be seen shooting out of the roof an hour later.

No one was injured in the fire, and everyone evacuated safely. Rib Mountain Deputy Chief John Lauer says the preliminary reports show the fire started somewhere in the kitchen, and then got into the roof. Crews spent the night trying to knock down the fire with multiple aerial fire trucks.

Sheriff's officials are detouring all traffic on Rib Mountain Drive tonight to allow crews to work safely. The fire remains under investigation.
