NORTH SHELBY – Demolition began Wednesday, Oct. 10, at a local barbecue restaurant that was damaged by a structure fire in May.

Full Moon Bar-B-Que announced that its Inverness/U.S. 280 location is scheduled to re-open in January 2019 following renovations.

The renovations of the 3,600-square-foot facility will include upgrades to flooring, interior décor and other features that are found in new Full Moon Bar-B-Que locations.

The restaurant has been closed since a structure fire on May 7.

Cahaba Valley Fire and EMR District and Birmingham Fire Department responded to the scene early that morning and found a large fire in the kitchen area.

The fire was contained to the kitchen area, officials said at the time, though the attic above the kitchen was also damaged.

The blaze was extinguished in about 20 minutes, and then an investigation into its cause began.

Restaurant staff members were at the restaurant at the time of the fire and reported it to authorities, but there were no injuries during the incident.

The restaurant is located at 4635 U.S. 280.
