-------------

Investigators are working to determine the cause of a fire at a southeast Sedgwick County bar - the second fire at the business since the weekend.

Crews responded to the report of a building fire shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday at Teddy Bare's, located in the 4800 block of South Clifton. When firefighters arrived, they found a fire in the back of the building and extinguished it quickly. No one was inside at the time.

Another fire was reported at the bar on Saturday, which remains under investigation. It's unclear if the two are related.

So far, no cause or damage estimate has been released for either fire.
