Yesterday morning, there was a fire at Fero’s Bar & Grill in Denver, Colorado and five dead bodies were pulled from the rubble. There have now been 3 arrests made in the killings at the Denver bar.
The fire report was called in at 1:50am, right before the 2am closing time at the bar.
Authorities weren’t really sure what had taken place at the Denver bar but did believe that the 5 people were dead, after suffering some sort of trauma, before the fire began.
There was extensive fire damage to the bar and officials speculated that even if the 5 people were alive before the fire that they would not have survived the fire itself and the fire was being investigated as an arson suicide.
The bar which has been described as a “dive” type bar had been struggling financially with the owner trying to sell the bar so it is unknown, at this time, if it was a random robbery or if the business was targeted.
