PORTLAND, Ore. - Fire destroyed part of a local bar late Wednesday night and the damage might have been worse had a police officer not noticed the flames and smoke and called it in.

The fire broke out around 10:30 p.m. on the patio at Dreams & Memories Public House at 3944 N.E. Cully Boulevard.

According to Portland Fire & Rescue, the patio was fully involved in flames when they arrived but they were able to quickly get the fire under control.

Fire investigators are looking into what happened.
