SANDPOINT, Idaho -

A fire at a bar in shut down part of Sandpoint on Thursday. 

The owner of the A&P's Bar and Grill told firefighters she was in the basement Thursday morning when she noticed a fire burning on the main level. She was able to get out of the building without any injuries and called the fire department. 

When firefighters arrived the bar was fully engulfed in smoke and flames. The bar is located in the Sandcreek Landing complex, surrounded by other businesses, but firefighters were able to contain the blaze to just the bar. We are told the business is a total loss. 

No injuries have been reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz says the agency needed the money to remove dead and dying trees.
