Las Margaritas restaurant on Cheshire Bridge Road was gutted by fire on Monday evening. The restaurant was closed and there were no injuries. The Atlanta Fire Department is investigating to determine the cause of the blaze. The restaurant is located not far from where Cheshire Bridge is closed after last week’s fire under a bridge that damaged the roadway. It is still unknown what caused that fire or when the road will reopen.
