Beloved Logan Square dive bar the Mutiny caught fire Thursday night, but the blaze caused no major damage, a fire department official said.

Chicago Fire Commander Walter Schroeder told DNAInfo that his department received a call about a fire in the bar’s back offices at 9:45 p.m., and firefighters put it out 30 minutes later. No one was injured.

In fact, the bar may not even have fully closed during the blaze. The Chicago Reader’s music editor, Philip Montoro, tweeted:

However, it did cause at least minor inconvenience. The fire forced a show by Glyders, a local band, to switch venues, from the Mutiny to East Room:

Place burned down before we could get rollin', come to East Room, we're doing a quickie survivor set in a few minutes

Casey Walker also tweeted a photo of the scene at the Mutiny:

The Mutiny, which has been a Logan Square staple since 1990, has made no mention of the fire on its Facebook or its extremely old-school website as of yet.
