Investigators looking for cause in popular Simonton Lake bar fire

Investigators are still trying to pinpoint what sparked a weekend fire that destroyed a popular Simonton Lake Bar.

That's according to our reporting partners at the ”Elkhart Truth”.

It happened around 5 a.m. Saturday at My Dad's Place on State Road 19 in Northern Elkhart County.

Crews spent more than two hours fighting heavy smoke and flames before finally getting the fire under control. Thankfully, no one was hurt, as the bar had closed for the night.

It is believed the well-liked watering hole is a total loss, but the bar's owner says she hopes to rebuild on the same spot once the investigation has ended.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, but the Fire Chief says he could have more answers by next week.
