Looks like KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) in Florence is going to get a badly needed makeover or remodeling because as of yesterday (Sunday evening) there was a fire in the front of the building near the KFC sign which is in the northeast corner of the building. I don't know if there was much damage, smoke or fire, inside the building but that corner did suffer quite a bit of fire and water damage so don't expect to be eating at KFC in Florence anytime soon.
That said KFC in Florence was badly needing some renovation as the building was allowed to go in disrepair and I wouldn't be surprised if the source of the fire was due to old wiring that had been allowed to deteriorate. Maybe they will take the opportunity to renovate the entire building while they are at it but then given it seems it's privately owned and the owner hasn't done anything to this point they might not now either.
Strange that we've had two restaurants closed account of fires recently. The Arby's on Florence Blvd has finally opened since their fire last fall and now KFC is going to have to go through it account of fire damage.
