Road re-opened following fire at local business


BECKLEY (WVVA) -- A portion of road outside uptown Beckley is reopened after a fire at a local bar closed it down Friday morning.

An employee at Shooter's Bar and Grille was coming into work around seven, when they smelled smoke. 

Fire crews responded shortly after and were able to control the fire within fifteen minutes.  They cleared the scene officially at noon. 

Second Street had to be closed down for a short period of time because of the hydrant firefighters were using.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but does not seem suspicious.
