Fire destroys a well known gay bar in Southeast Fresno
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- No one was inside The Den at 6 a.m. when the fire began. It started on the outside of the building and then spread through the attic.
Investigators say the cause of the fire is unknown.
The Den has had several different names over the last 40-years and managers say it is a real loss to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Dave Smith said, "...safe place to hang out. Very enjoyable. Good atmosphere. It's going to be missed and a tough loss for lots of people."
Damage to the building is estimated at $130,000. The owners have not said if they plan to rebuild or relocate.
