Fire in Watertown bar likely started in the basement

Assistant Fire Chief Don Rowland says the investigation ended quickly after it was determined it was too unsafe to do a more thorough examination of the rubble….


Rowland says investigators agree that the fire most likely started in the basement, possibly from a furnace, and burned for several hours before it was discovered early Thursday morning.


The building, which was the former Harbor Bar, was being used for storage at the time of the fire.


A meeting was held Monday with city officials to begin the process of “condemning” the building, so it can be demolished.
