JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Arby's closed its doors after a fire that officials say could have been much worse.

According to the incident report, investigators made a discovery on Wednesday while they were investigating a fire that began inside the building.

The roof of the building was found to be unstable and could have hurt customers and employees.

Jonesboro Fire Marshall Jason Willis tells Region 8 News he discovered several trusses broken.

Willis said the only thing holding the roof together was a rubber roofing material. The owner had to shut down the restaurant. Danger tape was placed around the building as a precaution.

Fire crews said no one was hurt in the fire.
