A small fire broke out in a wall at Long Bridge Bar today just before 2 p.m.

No one was injured in the incident, but the damage, which was contained to the single wall, was enough to close down the restaurant for the day.

Detroit Lakes Fire Chief Scott Flynn says construction work was the cause of the flames. The building has been undergoing some improvements lately but was still open to the public.

A manager at the business says they will reopen tomorrow at 11 a.m. after they have been able to clean the debris from the fire and extinguishers used to put out the flames.
