COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) - The Historic Round Table restaurant in Marion County was destroyed in a fire Wednesday night. 

The call came into the Columbia Fire Department at 8:20 p.m.  

Lt. Nathan Guy said, "The fire is underneath a lot of debris so it's going to be an on and off process all day long trying to get the water to soak down to it."

Firefighters battled the blaze overnight, and six fire fighters are still fighting flames as of 2:45 p.m. Thursday afternoon. 

The Round Table Owner Gary Blackwell said the restaurant was one of only two in the state.
