Ybor Street Reopening After Massive Bar Fire



7th Avenue in front of the Amphitheater nightclub in Ybor City is set to reopen in time for the Friday night bar crowd.

The reopening comes nearly two days after sparks from a welder’s torch caused ceiling material inside the Amphitheater to catch fire.

The results was a raging blaze that did a lot of damage and required an engineer to inspect the structure to make sure it was still sound.

Businesses around the Amphitheater will reopen gradually after being forced to vacate when officials still weren’t sure the Amphitheater building would keep standing.
