The fire department was dispatched to Denny’s restaurant on South James Street early this morning for what turned out to just be a faulty furnace.
Fire officials said a smoky haze entered the restaurant through the air ducts and employees called 9-1-1 at 6:19 a.m. Firefighters responded and traced the haze back to a fault in the furnace, authorities said.
The initial call to 9-1-1 went out as a possible building fire, but officials said this morning there was no actual fire.
No one was injured.
