A State Police fire marshal spent Thursday investigating a Christmas Day fire that damaged a bar in Deerfield Township in western Warren County.
It now appears that the fire broke out in a rear room on the second floor of the structure located on Route 27.
Five fire companies responded to the blaze shortly after 3:00 PM Wednesday. They remained on the scene for about three-and-a-half hours. Fire damage was contained to the second floor, but the first-floor bar and dining area sustained substantial water damage.
No injuries were reported. There was no early damage estimate available.
