MALTA, N.Y. – A Dunkin’ Donuts in Malta was completely destroyed after an early morning fire Thursday.

Officials said the call for the fire on Dunning Street came in just before 3 a.m. Thursday. Multiple crews responded, and it took several hours for the fire to be knocked down.

A cause for the fire is still under investigation, but Malta Ridge Fire Chief said it appeared the fire started in the back of the building near the ovens.

The owner of the Dunkin’ Donuts said he had the building built ten years ago, and it was recently remodeled.

The store was not open at the time the fire began, but at least one employee was inside but got out safely.

The restaurant also operated as a manufacturing facility that delivered doughnuts to surrounding stores. There were also offices in the back of the building.

The Dunkin’ Donuts has been deemed a total loss. The fire has been put out but crews were still working on hot spots Thursday morning. Cold weather and ice made it difficult for crews to put out the blaze.
