Augusta (WQOW) - Late Wednesday night, The Black Bear Supper Club was heavily damaged in a fire and appears to be a total loss.

At 10:44 p.m. Fall Creek Fire, Augusta Fire, and Fairchild Fire were dispatched to the supper club on Hwy 27 north of Augusta.

Upon arrival, the fire had already made its way through the roof and sides of the building, leaving the interior and its contents burned.

The owner of Black Bear's home was protected by fire crews. "We were able to get water on that and keep that from burning down," said Fall Creek Fire Chief Jamie Kaeding, "So the owner at least has a home to stay in and nobody got hurt."

No injuries were reported. Chief Kaeding went on to say that investigations into the cause of the fire are on hold due to the extensive damage.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the supper club as being located in Fall Creek.
