Basnight's restaurant burns

A popular Nags Head restaurant owned by state Senate leader Marc Basnight suffered major damage from a fire early this morning, according to town officials.

Nags Head officials reported that the town's Fire and Rescue Division responded to a two-alarm fire at Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe at 12:56 a.m. today.

No injuries were reported, but town officials said damage to the restaurant is expected to exceed $1 million.

"It's just about a total loss," said Roberta Thuman, a spokeswoman for the town. "About the only thing standing is the kitchen."

Thuman said this morning that the cause of the fire has not been determined.
