Local Sports Bar Burns to the Ground
November 23, 2011, 9:47 am
A favorite pit stop for sports fans in Forest Grove may be a complete loss after an early morning fire. Flames were shooting from the roof of the Primetime Sports Bar
on 4200 Pacific Avenue when crews arrived at four this morning. Fire crews quickly elevated the call to a third alarm, bringing extra resources from surrounding agencies. The intensity of the fire forced them to pull back and take a defensive posture, pouring water on the building as the fire continued to rage.
As of 10 a.m. there is no cause for the fire. Crews on scene say it appeared to start in the attic of the business. One firefighter was taken to the hospital after complaining of chest pains, but no other injuries were reported as a result of the fire.
