COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a fire that damaged a Georgia business used as a backdrop in “The Vampire Diaries” should not affect filming of the television series.

The Covington News reports that Thursday’s fire struck the interior of the building known on the television show as the Mystic Grill. Fire officials say the facade for the fictional restaurant remains intact.

The building’s interior, which houses law offices, sustained significant damage.

Lawyer Jimmy Alexander said he didn’t have a cost for the damage, but said repairs could possibly reach $1 million considering the building, built in 1890, will now need to comply with current building codes.

Covington police Capt. Ken Malcom says the fire was sparked by electrical wires that came down after a tall delivery truck snagged overhead power lines.
