Investigators release final report on Richardson's restaurant fire

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX – Nearly nine months after a fire destroyed a landmark Valley restaurant, investigators are releasing their final report.

The fire that tore through Richardson's Restaurant in Phoenix last July has been ruled accidental.

At the time the owner accused a contracting company of spraying roofing foam onto an outdoor air conditioning unit, causing the fire. The company denied those allegations.

Richardson's is expected to re-open this fall in a new location.
