Fire At Frankenmuth’s Famous Zehnder’s Restaurant

FRANKENMUTH (WWJ/AP) – A fire in a freight elevator shaft at a well-known Bavarian-themed restaurant in Michigan didn’t disrupt the meals of a dining room full of customers.

The fire at Zehnder’s Restaurant in Frankenmuth was contained Wednesday night in the elevator shaft and was separated from a dining room by the kitchen, Mlive.com reported.

Frankenmuth Assistant Fire Chief Phillip Kerns says fire suppression sprinklers went off in the kitchen around 6:45 p.m., but customers didn’t have their meals disrupted.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Kerns said the building is in good shape.

For many in the metro Detroit area, a trip to Frankenmuth isn’t complete without a stop at Zehnder’s Restaurant, which is most famously known for their traditional family style chicken dinners and fresh breads and pastries.
