Multiple fire departments say they worked for hours to put out a blaze at an old restaurant and bar in the Hitchcock area Saturday afternoon.

According to officials, the fire began around 12:15 p.m. in the 2100 block of Harborwalk Drive.

It is unclear how the fire started, however, it was still going for about three hours after it began.

Fire officials say their initial reports indicated that part of an elevated structure on the building’s second floor had collapsed due to the fire.

Hitchcock Fire Chief Jack Robinson said around 50 people from six different fire departments were working to put out the blaze.

Two volunteer firefighters reportedly experienced heat exhaustion due to the fire, according to Robinson.

Officials say the restaurant and bar have been closed since before the pandemic.

The Hitchcock Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of the fire.
