The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that deputies were called early Sunday morning to a fully involved structure fire at 22 Main Street in South Glens Falls, which had formerly been the China Buffet restaurant. 

The building, which has been vacant for many years, had formerly been a McDonald’s – McDonald’s had vacated the building in 2005, and in 2007, the building was purchased for $475,000 and became the China Buffet restaurant. The vacant 4,500-square-foot restaurant is currently listed for sale for $650,000. 

The building was not occupied when the fire broke out, and the cause of the fire has not been determined. No injuries were reported… However, the fire spread to the neighboring Glens Falls Candy Co. and the Wash and Wear Laundry. Both of these structures were visibly damaged from the blaze, and will be closed until further notice.
