Benson, N.C. — Firefighters from several local departments responded to a fire early Friday at Pitchers Bar in Benson, Johnston County officials said.
Crews responded to the restaurant, which is in the 1900 block of North Wall Street near Interstate 40, about 5:30 a.m.
The bar's roof collapsed as a result of the fire, and officials said the building was a total loss. Investigators said the accidental fire started because of an electrical issue in the ceiling or attic.
