Plymouth Police arrived on the scene and confirmed thick smoke in the area of 414 W. LaPorte Street, the former Brother’s Night Club. The Plymouth Fire Department arrived finding heavy smoke coming from the many crevasses of the building. They immediately began the process of trying locating the fire.
Assistant Fire Chief George Cook explained the complication they faced. The fire was in the basement and crawlspace area with some of it being inaccessible. Firefighters tore siding off the exterior of the building tying to get to the origin.
Assistance with an Engine and manpower was received by the Argos and LaPaz Fire Departments and Plymouth had two engines, the rescue truck, ambulance, command vehicle and aerial platform truck.
A cause has not been determined yet. Plymouth Fire Investigator John Pasely will begin the process of determining the cause of the fire Tuesday.
The business has not been open for some time but is still set up as a bar and has an active liquor license.
According to the Marshall County GIS the deeded property owner is Torres Bertin although the fire department stated the property is being purchase on land contract.
No injuries were reported and between 1,000 and 1,500 gallons of water were used to put out the fire.
