Flames swept through Cap’s Tavern, a popular Brewer nightspot, late Thursday.
The fire was reported at the South Main Street bar around 11 p.m. Fire crews from several area departments came to fight the blaze. Firefighters arrived to find flames shooting out of the second story, which holds a couple of apartment units.
No one was injured in the fire. The bar had already closed for the night.
The state fire marshal’s office has been called in to investigate the cause of the fire.
Jason Moffitt, Brewer’s public safety director, told WVII that “There’s some things that are relatively suspicious, so we are considering it a crime scene and have asked for assistance from the fire marshal’s office.”
A message left for Brewer public safety officials wasn’t immediately returned Monday morning.
