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:
I'm hearing that the bar at the Mutiny is still open right now, despite the fire. It was pretty small and contained.— Philip Montoro (@pmontoro) March 18, 2016
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:
Casey Walker also tweeted a photo of the scene at the Mutiny:
