Fire damages live music venue, restaurant and bar on Whyte Avenue

A fire which broke out early Monday morning inside a Whyte Avenue building which houses a nightclub, a restaurant, and live music venue, has been brought under control.

Just after 5 a.m., eight fire crews were called to the property on Whyte Avenue and 105th Street. 

The building houses Club 82, The Forge and Queen Donair.

Smoke inside The Forge set off alarms, said Suzzette Mellado, spokesperson for Edmonton Fire Rescue.

The fire started on the south side of the building and all three businesses have suffered smoke damage, Mellado said.

No one was injured in the fire, said Mellado. Several firefighters had to be treated for smoke inhalation as a precautionary measure. 

The fire was brought under control just after 7 a.m. Crews remain on scene dealing with residual smoke and hot spots.

Whyte Avenue was closed between 105th Street and 106th Street and morning traffic had to be re-routed.
