30 firefighters from five different fire departments were called to “My Dad’s Place” near Simonton Lake early Saturday morning.
It took about an hour-and-a-half to bring the fire under control.
No one was inside when the fire started.
The bar had been around since the 1960s.
“It’s been a staple of this township, so we definitely lost a good business,” said Daniel Kurtz of the Osolo Township Fire Department.
“It’s like losing a family member,” added customer Randy Beegle. “It’s gonna be hard for awhile. Hopefully, she’ll be able to rebuild, start it back up and continue to go on with it.”
The Indiana Fire Marshal’s office is now handling the investigation.
