A well-known Uptown Dallas Restaurant and Bar burst into flames Thursday morning. It's shocking for the proprietors who said they have been attempting to bring business back following an extreme pandemic year.
The fire at the Gaslight on McKinney Avenue began around 8:30 a.m. Dallas Fire-Rescue said when firefighters showed up, there was at that point thick smoke and blazes shooting through the room.
Nobody was in the structure at that point, so firefighters had the option to get the blazes leveled out after around 30 minutes.
The bar's owner said it got started about a month before the pandemic started and needed to work at half limit regarding practically the entirety of the preceding year.
He was eager to see a significant Cinco de Mayo swarm on Wednesday and was idealistic that things were at long last beginning to pivot.
"It's quite intense, man. We got a call from certain companions who live opposite the road disclosing that our structure was ablaze. So after having a decent beginning to porch season, it would seem that we will be stopped," said Adam Evers, a co-proprietor. "Ideally, we can rescue anything that remains. We have some looking to do inside, yet right now, it looks quite awful."
DFR is attempting to decide the reason for the fire, which seems to have begun the porch.
McKinney Avenue was closed down between Lemmon Avenue and Hall Street.
