West Virginia Bar Goes Up In Flames. Watch the Attack Footage

TheDPost.com. MORGANTOWN — Morgantown Fire Department crews responded to the scene of a fire at Buck’s Corner Pub reported at about 2:45 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28, that ended up gutting the bar.

Dixie Bucklew, whose family owns the bar, said she started the deep fryer in the kitchen, then went outside to change the sign in front. When she came back in 5 minutes later, the kitchen was completely engulfed.

Fire crews fought the fire for several hours, declaring the blaze under control at 9:30 p.m. However, a crew of Morgantown firefighters remained on scene throughout the night to watch for flare-ups. Fire chief Mark Caravasos said off-duty firefighters provided back-up for the rest of the city during the Buck’s fire.

No one was hurt in the blaze. One lane of Brockway Avenue was shut down, as crews tended to scene. Mon EMS was on scene as a firefighter rehab unit. The city’s Public Works department helped crews reach hidden fire pockets after the roof and main floor area collapsed. More than 150,000 gallons of water was used to fight the blaze, Caravasos said, and a backhoe was brought in to tear down the front of the building and move debris.

Damage estimates are unknown at this time. The Morgantown Fire Department is in charge of the investigation.
