MILLERVILLE - Fire destroyed the "Off the Eatin' Path" restaurant in Millerville on Sunday afternoon.

Firefighters from the Millerville and Leaf Valley fire departments responded to the call at about 3 p.m. but the fire had already spread rapidly throughout the structure.

The building was a total loss. No injuries were reported.

The restaurant had been closed ever since another fire caused substantial damage back in January of 2008. Someone was reportedly living in the rear portion of the building. The cause of the fire is under investigation, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, which also assisted at the scene. .
