Olive Garden destroyed by fire

Seven volunteer fire companies responded to an overnight fire at the Olive Garden restaurant on McKinley Parkway in Blasdell.

The business had already been closed for the night when smoke alarms summoned the first fire crews to the scene at about 1AM. Flames had broken through the roof, and were wind-whipped, making it hard for firefighters to get a handle on the fire.
