There’s dismay in the town of Sobieski, Minnesota after a blaze at a popular and acclaimed bar. It also throws a curve ball to fisherman and families traveling north for summer vacation getaways as it was a favorite pit-stop along the way.
Smoke and flames were seen coming from Herbie’s Bar in Sobieski on Monday evening near Little Falls, with the St. Cloud Times reporting that it followed what eyewitnesses described as an “explosion.”
It happened just before 7 p.m. at the family-owned bar and restaurant which was beloved by local residents and also got statewide acclaim when in 2014 it was voted as having the best fish fry by viewers of WCCO.
Images of the fire were posted to Facebook by Kaye Ringwelski, showing flames and a big plume of smoke rising from the building.
