FIRST ON KHQ: Loon Lake Restaurant Destroyed By Fire; READ The Compelling Facebook Comments

LOON LAKE, Wash - A fire has destroyed a restaurant off of Hwy 395. The business is called "Dinner Bell." The restaurant caught fire on Tuesday morning in the Four Corners area of Loon Lake. We're told the fire started as a grease fire when it got out of control. Stevens County Fire and Spokane County Fire attacked the fire together. Employees and customers thought they had the fire out but the hood extinguisher apparently malfunctioned and the fire got up into the eves. The building is a complete loss. Look for the very latest here on KHQ.Com, KHQ, Facebook and our Twitter news feed.

Ricky Leliefeld This year was the DinnerBells 50th year as it was built in 1961 after the new highway was put thru.Before then the highway followed the lake around and then on down to springdale,valley and chewelah.I can remember coming home to Loon Lake and when you came over the top of the CedarBow pass if it was foggy you could see the red glow from the swinging red neon bell on top of the restaurant,I also cooked at the DinnerBell for a couple years in the early 90s.A great Place to eat and go for a drink.
