EL CAJON—About 20 patrons were evacuated Tuesday evening from a local pub after a roof fire filled the bar with smoke.
San Miguel Firefighters responded to the fire at Kelly’s Pub on the 700 Block of East Bradley Avenue, in an unincorporated area of El Cajon.
The blaze started in a small section of the attic. In an effort to minimize damage to the structure; firefighters were able to attack it by removing ceiling tiles. This eliminated the need to cut large holes in the roof to vent the fire.
The preliminary cause of the fire may be tied to a recent construction project.
No injuries were reported. Damage is estimated at $20,000.
