Historic Ohio restaurant destroyed by fire



Published: Wed, January 8, 2014 @ 10:45 a.m.

WAVERLY, Ohio (AP) — Demolition crews were tearing down a southern Ohio landmark restaurant after it was gutted by fire.

The historic Emmitt House in Waverly, about 60 miles south of Columbus, has stood in the center of the village since 1861, first as a hotel and most recently as a restaurant.

The three-story brick building went up Monday night in a spectacular blaze as firefighters dealt with frigid temperatures trying to put it out. Heavy equipment was brought in to demolish the building Tuesday.

The building had gone through several owners over recent years and several openings and closings. The current owner had reopened it in September. It had gained notoriety for supposedly being haunted, and has been featured on national TV shows in recent years.

Blame it on the ghosts.

Any structure that has had a frequent turn over of ownership needs to be inspected carefully for code violations.

Those type of buildings are often modified by the latest owner in a less than sound manner to suit his needs at the least cost, propagating hazards.
