Blaze destroys Rocky Point business

ROCKY POINT – A late-morning blaze destroyed the Rocky Point Bar and Grille Monday, reducing the popular eatery overlooking the Ohio River to little more than a pile of rubble. Cannelton firefighters were notified just before noon that smoke was coming from the rear of the restaurant.

By the time the first fire units arrived, plumes of smoke were billowing from the back of the structure. Flames soon shot through the roof.
