MOORHEAD – Fire heavily damaged a long-closed nightclub in downtown Moorhead early this morning.

Firefighters were called to the former Coaches bar about 2:45 a.m.

Upon arriving they found heavy smoke coming from the building, with the heaviest fire concentrated in what used to be the nightclub’s kitchen, said Assistant Fire Chief Rich Eggert.

Firefighters battled the blaze a good part of the night and were putting out hotspots in the building’s roof about 7 a.m.

Eggert said the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Center Avenue remained closed to traffic as of 7:20 a.m., but Eggert said it would likely be opened soon.
