Pitcher's Mound A Smoke-Filled Bar

Staff Reports

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — An electrical fire on Friday morning will close the Pitcher's Mound this weekend.

"There was a lot of smoke and we're going to have to have it professionally cleaned up," said co-owner Jack Rivard. "It could have been a lot worse. The Fire Department did a terrific job."

Firefighters responded to the report of a fire at about 11 a.m. and quickly contained it. The fire was contained quickly but spread smoke through the building at the corner of Porter and Ashland streets. The fire was reportedly caused by a bad condenser on a beer cooler in the basement.

Repairs to the electrical system will also have to be done. Rivard expected the pub to be closed for "two to three days" to make repairs.
