                                            A MAQUOKETA RESTAURANT WAS DAMAGED
                                           BY FIRE THIS AFTERNOON.     THE DAMAGE TO
                                           "PERXACTLY BAR AND GRILL" IN DOWNTOWN
                                           MAQUOKETA WAS CONTAINED TO SMOKE AND
                                           WATER DAMAGE.    IT WAS UP AND TO THE REAR
                                           OF THE BUILDING, AS YOU SEE HERE.     FIREMEN
                                           WERE CALLED ABOUT 3 P.M. AND SMOKE WAS
                                           COMING OUT OF THE REAR ATTIC VENT WHEN
                                           FIREMEN ARRIVED.     MAQUOKETA FIRE CHIEF
                                           MARK BECK DID NOT GIVE AN EXACT CAUSE OF
                                           THE FIRE AND SAID INVESTIGATION WILL CONTINUE
                                           TO DETERMINE THE CAUSE.      FIREMEN
                                            CONTAINED THE FIRE QUICKLY.    THE BUILDING
                                            IS JUST NORTHEAST OF THE FIRE MESS DOWNTOWN
                                            THAT HOPEFULLY WILL BE CLEANED UP IN
                                             APRIL.     THE POPULAR BAR WILL BE CLOSED
