Fire Destroys Little Cowboy Bar

BILLINGS -

Fire destroys a local landmark in Fromberg. The blaze broke out at the Little Cowboy Bar shortly after 12 PM on Wednesday.

Fromberg Assistant Fire Chief, Mike Ventling, says it was a chimney fire that got out of control.

The bar also had a small museum in the back, which was a total loss.

"When we got into the back, they were able to get some of the smaller items out, but not very much. Most of it is pretty well gone. And then it got up into the ceilings and it just end to end on the building," said Ventling.

The Assistant Chief also says, six months ago, the National Historical Society archived data and pictures of items in the museum.
