An early morning kitchen fire heavily damaged Millstadt’s West End Bar and Restaurant (West End Tavern). Just before 7 a.m., heavy smoke was seen billowing out of the back of the two-story structure. Firefighters from Millstadt, Columbia and Smithton responded to the blaze.
The majority of the damage was confined to the back kitchen area. The front bar / dining area was spared from most of the damage.
