A fire broke out at an Alton business early Tuesday morning. According Alton 2nd Assistant Fire Chief, Kevin Langel, the fire started at the rear of The Yard Bar and Grill's exterior around 3:45 am. Fire fighters were on the scene for about 2 hours putting the blaze out.
Two people were injured during the blaze, one firefighter needed medical attention and has since recovered, and an EMT received minor injuries that did not require medical attention.
Damage estimates to the structure are unknown at this time, and a neighboring residential building received heat, smoke, and water damage.
Langel suspects an electrical malfunction may have started the fire, but the official cause has not yet been determined.
The Alton Fire Department was assisted by the Hospers, Granville, and Orange City Fire Departments.
