Engine 81 arrived on scene reporting an exterior fire, however, upon further investigation, the fire extended to the building and roof. A short time later, the fire extended to a nearby home.

By 5:10 am, the fire was upgraded to a 2-alarm response with flames coming through a roof.

By 5:23 am, firefighters went “defensive fire attack” due to structure instability.

As of 7:20 am, CONFIRE reported the fire with multiple tenants, is under control. Crews extinguishing hot spots. No injuries. Fire under investigation.

What’s the history of that bar? I’ve known it was there at least 47 years but never went there.

It was a historic landmark in Antioch. So sad that people would set it on fire. What’s wrong with people.

Wow isn’t it suspicious that the bar owner and another guy were found upstairs dead of an overdose about 2 months ago and now a fire there and into that same apartment! I don’t think it’s a coincidence it’s more like a cover up!

RY You don’t know the owners or the people that worked there. Or anyone that went there. This is a tragedy , possibly a crime. The Abc Rendezvous is one of two old time neighborhood watering holes Antioch has left.
So show some Respect and Empathy. Or keep your mouth and keyboard silent.

This is a tragedy indeed. People lost their jobs because of this destruction. I hope the culprit(s) are found quickly. There are security cameras all over that area. Drove by there during the late morning and it was awful.

ST you don’t know anything about the Hard working people that owned the Abc Rendezvous. Or the Hard working people that worked there. The customers also hard working and decent for the most part. Someone set that fire to Harm to Hurt to destroy something that didn’t belong to them. If your on the side of the arsonists maybe you should run for The City Council!
