A Japanese restaurant in Superior, Wisconsin was destroyed in a devastating fire early Monday.
Fire crews were called to Wasabi All You Can Eat Japanese Restaurant at 3333 Tower Ave. Monday with crews arriving to find heavy smoke coming from the rear of the building.
While fire crews initially fought the blaze indoors, the deteriorating conditions forced them outside, with the fire eventually extinguished at 7:30 a.m. The building is considered a total loss, with the "heartbroken" owners sharing the news later Monday.
"The unexpected fire has burnt down our building," the restaurant posted on Facebook, adding: "That said, we are grateful for the firefighters to fight for us under that extremely bitter cold weather condition as well as the law enforcement staff. A huge thank you to all of you that reached out to us and shared your best wishes and great encouragements with us.
