FREDONIA, NY (WNY News Now) – A fire caused damage to a local pub in the village of Fredonia on Monday afternoon.
First responders were called to Heenan’s Irish Pub at 39 East Main Street around 3 p.m.
When crews arrived on scene, they reported smoke billowing from the building’s roof with flames visible on the first floor of the establishment at the corner of Main and Eagle Streets.
The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office Fire Investigation team has since launched a probe to determine what caused the blaze.
Preliminarily, officials say the fire originated on the exterior of the building, but spread to the bar’s interior.
“They found that it did go inside the wall, and then vertical into the floor too,” said Fredonia Fire Chief Josh Myers. “The bulk of the fire was knocked down rather quickly.”
The Fredonia Volunteer Fire Department was assisted by firefighters from Dunkirk and Sheridan. No injuries were reported.
Traffic was redirected on Main Street between Water and White Streets while first responders fought flames.
