Popular Arlington bar destroyed by fire

by

ARLINGTON, WI (WTAQ) - Officials say it might take a while to figure out what caused a fire that destroyed a popular bar and grill in south central Wisconsin.

Thirsty’s Bar in Arlington burned down over the weekend. A passerby called 911 early Saturday morning.

By then, officials said smoke was billowing throughout the 80-year-old structure, which used to be a general store.

Nine fire departments took about 4 hours to get the blaze under control – and water had to be brought in because of the bar’s rural location.

A firefighter was treated at a Madison hospital with a minor injury, after falling from a piece of equipment.
