this is a shame. what could have caused this store to burn like this. an employee had to have done something that was wrong. this needs to be investigated to see what really happen

that whataburger was old and nasty with poor service. the new jack in the box is probly giving this location a run for its money. what is easier fixing it or just burning it down and collecting insurance money

the caue is and probably was; grease in the venta hood and was the fire extingushers up to date on the systen set up to put out the fires in the ventahood. they are suppose to act automaticly. How long was it since a fire inspection was done.

I never had any problems at this Whataburger. I hope they build it back. Lancaster doesn't need to lose another business.

I hope they rebuild it, the other Whataburgers in Lancaster aren't really convienent unless you live by the freeway. Jack In The Box is fine, but it's no WHAT-A-BURGER!

It will not be rebuilt according to whataburger because they where losing money in this store and the cause was a light caught fire.

I work for whataburger and the higher ups say no it will not because 1. They have been losing money in that store. 2. There is already a whataburger in Lancaster. Don't you think it would of already been rebuilt?

The store burned down in September and nothing could even be done until the insurance issues had been handled. The remains of the building were recently removed, so construction couldn't have started by now.

My opinion. Restaurants will burn. Burn more than any small business. Arson folks said no crime.
