Severe Fire Closes Corner Bar in Rockford


An early morning fire at the Corner Bar in Rockford has left the building damaged and the bar’s owners unsure of what’s next.

No one was hurt in the fire, according to a Facebook post by the Corner Bar. “We want to give thanks that even though the fire is severe that no one was hurt.”

The restaurant said in the post it plans to reopen eventually.

“Let us reassure you that the Corner Bar will continue our fine history of serving the Rockford community just as soon as we get things sorted.

“We will continue to keep you posted on what is going on, but for now, we are assessing things and giving thanks that the building was empty and our most important assets – our staff and our guests – were not harmed.”
