Like everyone else I wake up and immediately check social media to see what I missed overnight. This morning I woke up to multiple posts about West Side Bar in Little Falls catching fire overnight in the early morning hours.

West Side Bar's Facebook page had a post that said:

Yes. there was a fire in one of the apartments above the bar. We will update as information us available

They mentioned in the comments a couple hours later that lightening seems to be the cause of the fire, and the bar itself is a total loss.

Little Falls Radio is reporting that the fire was believed to have started on the roof shortly after 1 AM. There are apartments attached to the building as well, and luckily all the people living there got out safely.

People are sharing their memories they made at the bar in tribute. We will keep this post updated if we find out more information throughout the day.
