Crews battle fire at The Tavern in Old Louisville

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Firefighters were called out early Tuesday to a bar fire in Old Louisville.

Crews were called to The Tavern on South Fourth Street near West Gaulbert Avenue. When firefighters arrived just after 3:30 a.m., they found a trash fire in an alley behind the bar.  That fire spread from the dumpster to the second floor and attic of the building.

It took seven fire trucks about 30 minutes to put the fire out.  While the upper floors suffered fire damage, the first floor bar area sustained mainly water damage.

No one was in the building, when the fire started. And Louisville Fire & Rescue says no other nearby buildings were ever in danger, and no one was evacuated.
