PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - A fire late Thursday night caused an estimated $125,000 damage to a Peoria pub.

The Peoria Fire Department was called about 10:20 p.m. to Donnelly’s Irish Pub at 4501 North Rockwood Drive, where first responders saw smoke coming from the roof.

Battalion Chief Lore Baxter said in a news release that the first crew on the scene worked to extinguish a fire coming from the hood vent on the roof. The second crew put out remaining fire in the kitchen, said Baxter.

The business was closed for the night, and no one was hurt.

Baxter said it took crews about 35 minutes to get the fire under control.

The fire department lists the fire as accidental, but an investigator was called to the scene to determine the exact cause and where the fire started.
