A New Year’s Day fire shut down the 3rd Rail Bar & Grill, located at 564 Osage Street, in Pacific indefinitely.

Pacific Fire Chief Rick Friedmann said the bar sustained significant damage and will be closed until significant renovations are made.

“It’s got some pretty extensive damage in the bar area from fire and heat,” Friedmann said. “A lot of heat and smoke damage. It’s actually been posted that it can’t be occupied until remodeling or whatever the owner decides to do with it.”

Friedmann estimated the damage at about 45 percent of the bar.

The call came into the Pacific Fire Department at 4:10 a.m. on Jan. 1.
