Palmour Tavern Fire

Fire broke out this morning at the Palmour Tavern, a landmark on King Street in Porcupine. At first it appeared the fire would be confined to an electrical panel in the basement when firefighters first responded, around 9:30 a.m. But the fire soon got into the walls and from there it appeared it get out of control. It was about an hour after firefighters arrived that Highway 101 (King Street) had to be closed due to heavy smoke. Fire chief Mike Pintar says the fire is under investigation.
