Smoke was spotted Friday afternoon coming up from behind the Tide Pool Pub at the north end of Depoe Bay. One witness saw flames emanating from a garage in the rear portion of the property. Depoe Bay Fire/Rescue pulled up within a couple of minutes and had water on it very quickly. Firefighters chased the last of the fire up into the attic. Soon it was out as well.
As for a cause, fire fighters say it’s “undetermined.” They’re still looking at the evidence and talking to people. Damage was moderate and has not disrupted the Tide Pool Pub’s business. They’re still very open for business.
