Pentwater Business Destroyed by Fire

MCP and LDN reports on a fire that broke out in Pentwaters Dockside Restaurant and Pizza, 401 S. Hancock Street about 11:00 p.m. last night. The fire destroyed the building.

The business is owned by Jeff and Angie Darrow. The cause of the fire is still undetermined, but Angie discovered the flames after she had smelled smoke. A firewall protected the residence connected to the building. A van also played a casualty to the flames, but no one was injured during the blaze.

Assistant Fire Chief Paul Smith said the fire ignited a nearby natural gas line, which caused the fire to spread to the building.

Hart and Shelby fire departments were dispatched along with Riverton Township and Pere Marquette Township fire departments from Mason County.
