MADISONVILLE, KY (WFIE) -

Fire investigators have released the cause of the fire that destroyed a Madisonville restaurant.

Officials say the blaze that started around 4:30 Saturday morning in the China Jade Chelsea Drive was caused by the electrical system in the attic. 

Investigators tell us they do not believe fire was intentional.

The state fire marshal spent several hours combing through the most heavily damaged areas of the restaurant. Officials say the damage was extensive and most of the fire evidence was destroyed.

Crews were on the scene for about seven hours Saturday morning. No one was hurt in the blaze.
