QPD investigating early morning fire that damaged bar

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Fire Chief Joe Henning says the investigation of an early morning fire that caused damage to a building in downtown Quincy has now been turned over to the police department.

Firefighters responded to a call shortly after 4 a.m. Friday at Scooter's Bar. Flames were visible on the roof when crews arrived, but firefighters were able to extinguish it quickly. Crews remained on the scene to make sure hot spots were completely out.

Quincy Police Detective Gabriel VanderBol says investigators collected some evidence to send to the lab. The cause won't be determined until that information comes back.

The building does have an active liquor license, but Quincy Fire Chief Joe Henning says it appears the building was vacant at the time. He added, however, that someone had been doing some work upstairs.
