NINE MILE FALLS, Wash. - A fire destroyed a bar in Nine Mile Falls early Friday morning, and temporarily closed roads in the area.
Just after midnight, Spokane County fire crews were called to a fire at the "Dirty Shame Saloon", when they arrived they found a fully-involved fire at the bar.
Despite their best efforts, fire crews were unable to save the bar from burning to the ground.
Highway 291 in Nine Mile Falls was partially blocked while crews worked to mop up the fire, which took several hours.
Power was shut off to the bar because firefighters were concerned that the fire might spread to nearby areas, fortunately it was contained to just the building itself.
There is no word on any injuries. At this point crews have not determined a cause but say they will investigate.
