Early morning fire damages West Union restaurant


Two buildings sustained damage after an early morning fire in West Union.

It happened around 1 a.m. Saturday at Gus and Tony's Townhouse Cafe. That's in the 100 block of North Vine Street in West Union.

Authorities say at least five fire departments were called to help fight the blaze, including crews from Elgin, Hawkeye, Clermont and Oelwein.

No one was injured, but there is significant damage to Gus and Tony's and two apartments above it.

No word yet on what caused the fire.

Fire crews say a firewall kept the fire from spreading to an adjoining business.
