HENRICO, Va. (WTVR) – Investigators are working to determine what started a fire at The Boardwalk Restaurant off of Broad St. near Libbie Ave. in Henrico County.

“First arriving crews reported heavy fire from the kitchen area of the single story restaurant. Flames were also reported coming through the roof of the structure,” Henrico Fire spokesman Lt.
