A Coweta County pub was damaged by a fire early Thursday, but county firefighters were able to quickly isolate and extinguish the flames.

At 3:11 a.m., the Coweta County Fire Department was dispatched to a commercial fire at 10 Amlajack Boulevard, which is Murphy’s Pub, said Assistant Fire Chief Alan Smith. According to Smith, the first unit to arrive – Car 1 – found smoke and fire showing from the structure and determined the scene should be operated in an offensive mode.

Units also found the building was divided in two by a common wall and the roofs were separated. Trucks 1 and 6, Cars 4 and 702, Rescue 1 and Engine 12 arrived on scene, and units with Rescue 1 searched the building for any occupants and found no one, Smith said. Engine 12 then established a water supply to the two truck crews and fire personnel attacked the fire from the two entrances to the pub. The fire was then quickly brought under control and isolated to the pub building. The other section of the building sustained only smoke damage.

According to Smith, the entire interior of the building along with equipment and furnishings were damaged by heat, smoke and fire, but firefighters were able to save the building itself. Units cleared the scene around 5:51 a.m., there were no injuries and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
