An eastern Indiana restaurant has opened its doors and its kitchen to a popular breakfast joint driven from its longtime location by a dangerous wall.

Paulee Restaurant closed its doors Dec. 24 after a brick wall it shares with an adjoining Richmond business was found to be in danger of collapse. But the owners of the Firehouse BBQ & Blues' opened their doors to Paulee's, allowing the eatery to use its space until the wall is repaired.

Firehouse BBQ & Blues serves lunch and dinner. Co-owner Tom Broyles tells the Palladium-Item he feels good about allowing the breakfast eatery that opened in Richmond in 1948 to use its space.

The Firehouse installed a counter for Paulee's customers and the two restaurants began sharing space and a kitchen Monday.
