Popular Hill Country restaurant destroyed by fire

Damage estimated at $750,000

WIMBERLEY, Texas – A devastating fire Tuesday morning has left a small cafe in the Texas Hill Country picking up the pieces.

The Cypress Creek Cafe in Wimberley went up in flames at 2 a.m., the Wimberley View reported. The paper said the owners, who live above the cafe, woke up to the sound of a smoke alarm.

Both made it out OK.

Nearly a dozen fire units responded to the fire and were able to keep the fire from spreading to other businesses.

Both the business and the residence above it were destroyed.

Damage is estimated at around $750,000.

In a Facebook post, the restaurant said it will be closed until further notice.

The fire comes as the town has continued to make great strides in recovering from a devastating flood on Memorial Day weekend in 2015.

The flood flash flood hit in the middle of the night, killed 12 people and caused millions of dollars in damage.

We are devastated to say that the CCC will be closed until further notice.
