A state police fire marshal is investigating a blaze in a South Huntingdon bar that went up in flames early Sunday.

Firefighters were called to Jay's Bar & Restaurant along Markeys Road near the Yukon neighborhood at 8 a.m. Yukon Fire Department Chief Gary Moore said the fire appeared to have started in the basement and spread up to the first floor.

The original building is one story, and a two-story addition made room for a dining area, he said.

“We're not able to determine a solid source of what started the fire,” he said.

Firefighters were able to contain the blaze and salvage the building. The bar area sustained the most damage.

“We don't believe it to be a total loss,” Moore said.

No one was inside at the time of the blaze, and no injuries were reported. Seven fire departments assisted in fighting the fire, while several others provided auxiliary support, Moore said.
