St. Louis Ave. Apartment & Bar Fire Update
Tuesday, December 14, 2021
Firefighters found a two-story apartment and an adjacent bar known as the Harbor Inn on fire. Due to the exposures and active fire conditions, the incident commander requested a second alarm brining in mutual aid from neighboring fire departments.
The Ocean City Fire Marshal’s Office has determined that the origin of the fire was within the unoccupied residence to the west of the Harbor Inn Bar, which sustained fire and water damage when the fire vented through the living area window of the residence. Bar damage was limited mostly to exterior and attic area (as the fire involved the bar soffit) because of the quick fire suppression by firefighters.
Ocean City Paramedics were on scene, however, no injuries were reported. The fire remains under investigation by the Ocean City Fire Marshal’s Office.
