March 11, 2018 10:58 PM

(ABC 6 News) - A downtown restaurant in Mazeppa went up in flames early Sunday morning, taking a fiery tumble onto a power line.

Mazeppa Fire Chief Brandon Goranson said the call came in around 3:45 a.m. of a fire at WD Bar and Grill.


The building was engulfed in flames when the department arrived on scene. Zumbrota, Zumbro Falls, Oronoco, and Pine Island Fire Departments were called in to help.

Goranson said it took first responders around 3 hours to control the fire.

While firefighters battled the blaze, the building collapsed and took out a power line.
Goranson said Xcel Energy told him around 620 homes were without power for more than 4 hours this morning.

The Mazeppa Fire Department also said minor damage was done to neighboring buildings; and even though the restaurant was connected to an apartment building, no one was injured.

The cause is under investigation.
