Blaze shuts down Leggs Lounge

VAN BUREN TWP - A fire that started near the bar area of Van Buren Township's Leggs Lounge, 50778 Michigan Ave., has closed the adult entertainment establishment indefinitely because of extensive damage.

Firefighters were called out to the lounge around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, after receiving a report of smoke coming from the building. After fire crews were sent out, multiple 911 calls started coming into central dispatch.

Fire department crews arrived and found a working fire inside the bar area of the establishment with smoke extending out of the roof, according to a press release.

Fire Crews extinguished the fire and called for the Michigan State Police, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Downriver Fire Investigation Team to assist with determining an origin and cause since the business includes alcohol sales and tobacco vending. The cause is currently being investigated by the above agencies.

Belleville Fire Department responded with an Engine and provided assistance with personnel.
