The second Hart County restaurant in a month was lost to a fire Saturday morning.

The Hart County Fire Department responded at around 10 a.m. Saturday to The Lake House Tavern on Rock Springs Road. The restaurant, which opened roughly a year ago, was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, said Hart County administrator Terrell Partain.

He said the building is a total loss and that as of noon on Saturday, the cause of the fire was still being investigated. No one was injured in the fire, Partain said.

Little Japan, a restaurant in downtown Hartwell, burned early the morning of Aug. 9 and was a total loss as well.
