Yesterday, news broke that one of Shreveport's up -and-coming bars would be closed for the foreseeable future after a fire nearly burnt the establishment to the ground.

The fire is curtrewntly being investigated by the Shreveport Fire Department's Fire Prevention Bureau, so if you know anything at all, please call 318-673-6760.

Sadly, it appears as though someone broke into the bar early Tuesday morning, poured gasoline on everything, and lit the place on fire.

I'm sure said person will get caught soon as more details come to light  on a daily basis.

Ernie plans to begin the process of rebuilding ASAP and I know I can't wait for the big re-opening party. Having said that, I think it's time for us to come together and do what we can to help.

A group of Ernie's friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help raise $10,000 to get Ernie's Bar where it needs to be to open the doors again.
