KFC Restaurant Explodes, Blast Caught On Camera

July 12, 2019

Holy Moly! A surveillance camera caught the moment a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in North Carolina exploded to pieces.

The explosion happened around 12:30 a.m. Thursday in Eden, which is about 35 miles north of Greensboro. Eden police said the fast-food restaurant closed between 10:15 and 10:30 p.m. and thankfully nobody was inside at the time of the explosion.

There have been no reports of injuries, authorities said.

A video from Eden Drug, a pharmacy next door to the KFC, showed the building suddenly ripped apart by a large blast as debris flew through the air. A photo the Eden Police Department posted on Facebook showed the store reduced to just a partial building frame.

“We are devastated by this incident, but most importantly we are grateful that all of our restaurant team members are safe and no one was injured," a KFC spokesperson said in a statement.

Employees who are affected will have their choice to work at six area KFC restaurants “to minimize disruption to their work schedules and pay” while the Eden location is rebuilt, the spokesperson said.
