Medford, OR -

At least seven other restaurants in Medford have offered jobs to some of the 30 employees who lost their jobs when a fire Saturday destroyed a Marie Callender's restaurant.

The area director for J&A Food Service, Marie Cole, said the Medford community reached out, with competitors offering to help the displaced workers.

Cole told the Mail Tribune the Marie Callender's restaurant will rebuild but it will be six month to a year before it's open again.
