The bar Ole VI in Herkimer is on fire.

The bar is located on North Washington Street across from K Mart. Animal Control Officer, Stephanie Berowski, was on the scene and she told us there was an apartment above the bar. She said the cat and dog were safely saved rescued and were put inside the gold car you see in the photos. Berowski says:

They have since been rescued from that vehicle because the car was to close to the fire. Everone made it out of the fire safely.

You are encouraged to avoid the area as emergency services are continuing efforts.
