Jonesy's Ranch House in Bureau was near full occupancy Friday morning. Now, it can't house or feed anyone after being leveled by fire Friday afternoon.
Bureau Fire Department's Lt. Nathan Burkman said smoke was visible from the structure as they arrived around 11:30am. Twenty-eight departments assisted – in some way – before the fire was out around 2:30pm. All occupants got away safely but the cause remains undetermined.
The Ranch House consisted of a restaurant, bar and motel. Rooms were positioned at ground level and basement level.
