Dakota County firefighters have been fighting a blaze that has engulfed a bar in Hampton, Minnesota.

Flames are leaping from the roof of the Naughty Pine Tavern, formerly known as Frank's Place, on Water Street, according to the Dakota County Sheriff's Office.

Pictures show the building completely alight, with commenters on Facebook suggesting the building is a total loss, while a few suggest there may have been a couple of dogs in the building.

Nobody is thought to have been injured in the fire.

GoMN has reached out to the sheriff's office for more information.

Here are some images from the fire posted on Facebook.
