No injuries in Hub City bar fire; investigation underway

HATTIESBURG — A fire gutted the Frat House bar early yesterday but authorities say there were no injuries.

The Hattiesburg American reports no one was in the bar on South 37th Avenue when the fire was reported shortly after 2:30 a.m.

Fire Investigator Geneva Morgan says the building was a total loss. No one was in the bar when the fire started, she says.

Fire chief David Webster says the flames pierced the roof in more than one part of the building.

Morgan said the investigation to determine the cause of the fire probably would take about a week.
