MOSCOW — A business in Lackawanna County is ruined after an early morning fire.

Flames erupted out of the top of Jacque’s Place on Drinker Turnpike near Moscow around 2:00 Wednesday morning.

Firefighters managed to control the fire, but not before much of the restaurant was destroyed.

An employee said she smelled something burning during her shift last night. There is an apartment above the restaurant, but a worker said the tenant is out-of-town.

No one was hurt.  Fire crews have not yet listed a cause.
