The Press Bar & Parlor went up in flames early this morning. It's been the number one topic today in St. Cloud and central Minnesota today. WJON reported this morning that the call came in at 2:40 a.m. and that firefighters from Sartell and Sauk Rapids were also called in to fight the blaze.

They were concerned about structural collapse, so the firefighters were pulled out of the building and concentrated on the adjacent buildings.

Kare 11 was on the scene as well and took video including aerial footage.
