ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) -- Officials in St. Cloud say they don't know yet what caused a fire that destroyed a historic downtown bar.

St. Cloud Fire Chief Dean Wrobbel says the fire started in the basement of the Press Bar and spread throughout the walls of the building.

The state Fire Marshal's Office was on the scene Tuesday.

The fire broke out early Monday morning. By that afternoon, the entire building had been leveled.

Rubble continued to smolder Tuesday.

The Press Bar dated back to 1942.
