McDonald's destroyed by fire reopens

A Frankfort McDonald's destroyed by fire reopened Thursday morning.

The restaurant on Versailles road in Frankfort burned down in December 2010 and had been open for 37 years.

A crowd waiting for the rebuilt restaurant to reopen gathered beginning at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

When doors opened Thursday morning, there was a line around the building.

"The community has been so supportive through all of this. It's been amazing," said owner Joe Graviss.

Around 80-percent of the crew from before the fire returned to work there.

The new building features wi-fi, high efficiency lighting and an outdoor patio with a water feature.

Firefighters think a heating unit sparked the fire back in December.
