Investigators say a weekend fire at a Madisonville restaurant started because of an electrical issue.

Madisonville's Fire Chief Steven Stoltz says it appears the fire started in the attic of the China Jade Restaurant. He says there were no signs of any suspicious activity.

Someone first noticed the fire around 4:30 a.m. Saturday, but investigators say it may have started at least a half hour before anyone noticed.
