Authorities say four people have died in a fire at a Wisconsin bar. Lafayette County Sheriff's Chief Deputy John Reichling says the fire broke out at the Silver Dollar Saloon in Blanchardsville around 3:20 a.m. Monday.

Reichling says the bodies of four adults were found inside, but he didn't know precisely where. Their identities have not been released.

The building housed the bar as well as apartments upstairs. Reichling says five fire departments kept the blaze from spreading to other buildings but the bar was destroyed.

The county coroner and the state Justice Department are investigating.

Blanchardville lies 30 miles southwest of Madison.
