Fire investigators have deemed the fire that destroyed an Augusta restaurant early Friday as arson.

Richmond County Fire Lt. Neal Brown said Friday night that the fire at North Leg Family Restaurant was a cover up for a burglary that occurred around 2:30 a.m. The burglars stole meat and other food items, but money and appliances were not taken, Lt. Brown said. The suspects left some meat on the floor before the restaurant was set ablaze.

The fire remains under investigation.
