Full Throttle Saloon Fire

STURGIS- The state fire marshal is investigating a fire that destroyed the Full Throttle Saloon, located east of Sturgis, South Dakota, which happened early this morning. The fire department was called in at 12:30am to battle the blaze that started inside the world's largest biker bar, only to retreat because of heat and smoke. Three hours later, the building was engulfed in flames. Unfortunately the fire severely damaged two historic bridges located on either side of the building complex. More information on the fire, the history of the HBs relocated to the site in 2008, and pictures of the saloon after the fire can be found here: More will be revealed in the coming weeks as to whether the building complex and the historic bridges will be rebuilt.
