Firefighters were dispatched to 1902 17th Ave. at 7:11 p.m. for a fire at the bar, according to South Milwaukee Fire Chief John Litchford.
There was nobody inside, and the establishment appeared to be closed when firefighters arrived, he said. No injuries were reported from occupants or first responders.
The fire did not extend past the first floor, Litchford said. No fire was found in the basement or apartments, only smoke. The fire was under control at 7:29 p.m. and the scene was cleared at 8:49 p.m.

We are extremely sorry to inform everyone that Brewtown caught on fire Monday night. We are grateful to report that no one was hurt, however, the damage is significant, and therefore we will be temporarily closed. Our dedicated team will be working hard over the next several weeks to rebuild, renovate, and bring Brewtown back better than ever.
