Early morning fire destroys Smuggler’s Inn in Kansas City


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An early morning fire destroyed what used to be the Smuggler’s Inn on Thursday.

Fire crews were called to the address on Universal Plaza Drive and found the building fully engulfed in flames.

The Kansas City Fire Department was able to put the fire out quickly and were working on cooling down hotspots so the fire wouldn’t continue to grow.

No one was inside and no one injuries have been reported from the fire. Reports say the restaurant inside the bar had not been open in a while.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
