HAYDEN — A structure fire broke out early Sunday morning at the Hiway 40 Grill & Lodge in Hayden. West Routt Fire Protection District firefighters responded and quickly extinguished the blaze.

Crews were dispatched at 5:30 a.m. after receiving a report that smoke was filling the upstairs of the building. Firefighters were able to knock down the fire, and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue, Hayden Police, Routt County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado State Patrol were also on scene to assist Sunday morning.

A fundraiser is planned Friday, July 17, to raise money for Hiway Bar employees, who are being affected by the fire because it has forced the restaurant to close temporarily. From 5 to 8 p.m. another Hayden restaurant, Fais Do-Do Bistro, 195 W. Jefferson Ave., will be collecting donations for Hiway 40 employees and their families. In addition, 10% of sales at the restaurant that night will be donated to the cause.
