Electrical fire reported at bar

NEW CASTLE — An apparent electrical short prompted a fire call at a Croton area bar Tuesday night.

New Castle firefighters were summoned just before midnight to the Ocean’s 11 bar at 1139 Eastbrook St.

When firefighters arrived, they discovered a fire in the ceiling of a restroom, where wiring in an electrical box was shorting out.

The fire was contained to the box area, and firefighters used a fan to clear smoke from the business, which was open at the time.

Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
