Fire strikes Ambridge bar formerly owned by Pirate

By The Associated Press
Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 8:57 a.m.
 

A state police fire marshal was investigating a blaze that destroyed a Beaver County restaurant once owned by Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jim Rooker.

The business formerly known as Rook's East Side Saloon in Ambridge was reported on fire about 1 a.m. Wednesday. It was destroyed, along with some apartments above the business.

Nobody was in the apartments, and nobody else was injured in the blaze.

Officials say the business reopened as a Mexican restaurant under new ownership in May. It was called Rook's Cantina 505.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined.
