Coming down

The Chanute Fire Department remained on-hand as demolition of PlayMakers Sports Bar & Grill began Wednesday afternoon. A fire the previous evening totaled the building and required assistance from Iola and Parsons firefighters. The Kansas Fire Marshal’s Office and CFD spent Wednesday at the site investigating and collecting evidence, but as of press time had not determined a cause of the blaze. CFD continuously sprayed water into the structure as the walls came down to mitigate the reigniting of any hot spots. As they did Tuesday during the fire, many Chanute citizens gathered nearby to watch the demo.
