MADISONVILLE, KY (WFIE) - The Kentucky State Fire Marshal will be in Madisonville on Tuesday to try and determine what started a fire at the China Jade restaurant.

We're told the restaurant was not engulfed when crews first arrived on the scene Saturday morning,  but flames soon began to take over.

Officials say the fire started in the attic area and they say the cause does not appear to be suspicious.

Crews were on the scene for about seven hours Saturday morning.

No firefighters were hurt.
