Sandbagging saves Fairbank staple

Posted: Updated:

A popular Fairbank restaurant was saved from flooding thanks to hard work from volunteers.

Hundreds of people helped sandbag around Costa's Sports Bar and Grill. 

Even though water was all around it, the restaurant was saved.

Their Facebook page says, "There's not enough beers or pizza in the world to show our appreciation for every single person that volunteered their time today! From young to old, female to male there was soo much support not just for us but for everyone! So thank you to everybody that helped we'd literally be drowning without all of you! This community really is a team effort!"

Hear from the owner tonight on the KWWL News at 5 p.m. 

Extra sandbags that were not used in Fairbank will be sent to Independence.
