GARDINER, Mont. (AP) — A fire destroyed several businesses in Gardiner, a Yellowstone gateway town, just six weeks after Montanan’s entrances to the park reopened following a closure meant to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The fire began Tuesday afternoon and damaged the Two Bit Saloon, the Yellowstone Raft Company, and Rosie’s Bistro, officials said.

Two Bit Saloon owner Chuck Tanner tells The Billings Gazette that Red’s Blue Goose Saloon was demolished by emergency crews to halt the spread of the fire and save the rest of the block.

Greg Coleman, with Park County Emergency Management, said the fire was under control by 8:30 p.m. The cause of the fire was under investigation.

No injuries were reported.
