Fire at Papa's causes $150,000 in damage
Talk about a rude awakening. At 3:32 a.m. Thursday, April 17, Dan Niedere's phone rang. It was the Hastings Police Department, calling to tell him that his business, Papa's Bar and Grill, was on fire.
Niedere raced to the scene and called his friend and co-owner, Adam Notch, on the way.
"I didn't know exactly what to expect," Niedere said. "It wasn't looking too good when I got there. There was quite a lot of smoke coming out."
