ANACONDA -

Good news for Anaconda residents. Iconic bar Club Moderne will rise from the ashes.

"I hope it gets rebuilt because I know a few people that are actually related to the people that own it and their pretty affected by it. Hopefully, it gets rebuilt soon,” said Derek Lecher, an Anaconda local.

Club owner John Hekkel says they plan to rebuild and hopefully re-open the bar, which has been Anaconda institution since 1937. Hekkel didn't exactly say what caused the devastating fire, but said it was an accident.

For now Anaconda residents say the absence of Club Moderne is deeply felt in the community.

"I think everyone would like to see it rebuilt. It's been here forever. It's an iconic landmark in Anaconda. Anaconda is just not the same without it,” said Sheena Deaton, an Anaconda local.
