GRAYTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Fire officials in Florida’s Panhandle say a fire has destroyed a famed beachside restaurant and bar.

The South Walton Fire District said in a Facebook posting that crews responded to the Red Bar around 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Several roads in the area have been closed while firefighters continue to extinguish the fire in Grayton Beach, which is about 28 miles northwest of Panama City Beach.

The Red Bar was a popular destination for live music along Florida’s Gulf Coast.

The fire marshal will investigate the cause of the fire. No additional details were immediately available.
