Fundraiser created to help victims of St. Peter apartment fire

“Employees at a local sports bar are trying to raise money for two coworkers after a fire Saturday night destroyed their apartment along Highway 169.

Joe Mueller and Jeff Terpstra, kitchen manager and assistant manager at Neisen’s Riverside Sports Bar, met General Manager Katie Straub at the bar around midnight. The fire had left the two men without a place to stay.

They told Straub they were having a holiday gathering at their home that night when police showed up.

At 11:11 p.m., an outside caller said they saw “visible flames through the roof” and smoke rising from the historic two-story brick building at 101 S. Minnesota Ave., St. Peter Fire Chief Matt Ulman said. Police ordered everyone to exit the building and stay out.”

Fortunately, there were no injuries in what is suspected as an electrical fire. Although, the roof was completely collapsed and water damage from the firefighting efforts have complicated an already difficult clean-up process. A business, which rents the first floor, was also looking for answers into how this incident happened.
