TARPON SPRINGS (FOX 13) -

Officials are investigating a three-alarm fire that destroyed a business in Tarpon Springs Tuesday night.

A fire broke out at the 701 Tap House Bar and Grill on North Pinellas Avenue just before 6 p.m.

Huge flames could be seen coming from the building. It took multiple crews two hours to get it under control.

"There was a lot of flames coming from the top of the building, a bunch of people were being evacuated, it just didn't look good at all," said Joseph Martino, a witness.

Nearby businesses were evacuated and roads were shut down in the area while crews battled the blaze.

Firefighters say the building is a total loss.
