The initial call went out at 10:30pm. 

While battling the blaze, there was a partial roof collapse. The Brewery is located in the back of the business. The eatery, which suffered heavy smoke and water damage, is in front.  

Fifty firefighters were on the scene. One suffered heat exhaustion and was treated and released from a local hospital.
