A fire destroys Coyote’s Dockside Cafe and Pub in Kimberling City Wednesday night.

The Southern Stone County Fire Protection District first got a call around 10:30 Wednesday night that the cafe was fully englufed. Chief Keith Wolven says high winds caused two-thirds of the dock to detach and that firefighters used boats to move the flaming dock away from a row of house boats.

No injuries were reported. Investigators are still working to determine a cause. The owners of Coyotes Dockside say they had such a successful summer last year, that they plan on rebuilding.
