New Castle firefighters Tuesday morning were on the scene of a fire that gutted Buzz & Rich's Tavern on the city's South Side.

The fire broke out around 9:15 in a back second-floor apartment of the building at 1701 Hamilton St., and spread throughout the upstairs, according to owner Mark Panella. A man who was in an adjacent apartment upstairs was alerted and got out of the building unharmed.

Panella said he was working downstairs when a delivery man noticed smoke coming out of the second-floor window.

No injuries were reported. More information will be available later on Tuesday.
