Taylor said no one was inside the building at the time the fire began and there were no injuries. The cause of the fire has not been determined and is under investigation by the DFD. The fire damage is estimated at $25,000.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said the fire began on the back deck. The restaurant’s sprinkler system contained most of the fire before crews arrived and extinguished the remainder of the fire, and there was no known damage to the interior of the business.
A woman who answered the phone at Tailfin’s said the second and third floor of the restaurant are open.
