A well-known downtown Oshkosh bar was destroyed by a fire Tuesday morning. The fire broke out around 1:40 a.m. at an apartment building next to Mabel Murphy's bar in the 700 block of North Main Street, Oshkosh Fire Department spokesman John Holland said. By the time firefighters arrived at the scene, the fire had already spread to the bar. Mabel Murphy's collapsed due to the fire. The building next door where the fire started is still standing, Holland said, though it has significant fire, water and smoke damage. "There was a lot of fire," he said. No one was injured and all the apartment residents made it out safely, Holland said. Nine people were displaced from the apartments and are being assited by the Red Cross, spokesperson Justin Kern said. The fire department is asking people to avoid the area of Main Street and East Irving Avenue this morning. Holland said the streets will likely be closed until at least noon.
