Just before 5.00am Police and DFES were called to a tavern on Brand Highway that was on fire.
DFES were able to extinguish the fire and Geraldton Detectives are currently investigating the cause of the fire, which at this stage appears to be suspicious.
Residents around town were shocked to see the damage, with many contacting Everything Geraldton regarding the incident.
"Does anyone know what happened outside Tarcoola Tavern this morning? Police had it taped off, police in sperm suits, and two paddy wagons. Traffic control was in place closing off the lane."
"... Tarcoola tavern. Looks like it's been on fire. Cops everywhere!"
"Goodbye tarcy tavern its burnt to the ground =( office and part bottleshop is gone"
