An historic mansion and popular restaurant in Abilene is a total loss following a fire Wednesday evening.
It happened at the Kirby House shortly after 6 p.m. Our sister station WIBW reports that the restaurant had closed around 1 p.m. ahead of the winter storm.
The mansion, which was built in 1885 now serves as a restaurant. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
