STURGIS, S.D. -- Numerous fire agencies were called in to battle a massive fire at the Full Throttle Saloon east of Sturgis overnight Monday.

The call came in just after midnight, and crews first on the seen could see smoke coming from the roof of the main structure. Soon, the entire facility was engulfed in flames, which spread to nearby structures.
Heavy smoke rose into the early morning air as fire crews raced back and forth bringing water and supplies. The lack of water on the bar grounds prompted fire officials to call in tenders, which then had to go back and reload.

A call came out from those in charge to keep people out of the burning structure. Rather, fire crews worked to "surround and drown," or fight the fire from outside by surrounding it.
Fire crews had to temporarily close Highway 34 in front of the structure because of the dangerous conditions.

Fire crews from Piedmont, Vale, Whitewood, Sturgis and Fort Meade were among the agencies called in to fight the blaze. They remain on scene this morning as the rubble continues to smolder.
The Full Throttle Saloon is owned by Michael Ballard, and his rally-week life running the establishment is the plot for a television show which filmed once again this year..

Sturgis Volunteer Fire:
The station reported the fire started just before 1 a.m. No injuries were reported

Oh man!! Too bad they stopped filming the show. The network is probably killing themselves for missing this storyline.

A lot of people think Michael did it for the insurance money. I would not be surprised.

I don't know who they were recording for but it wasn't the Tru show. They announced that they weren't filming there this year. Or maybe that was last year. I guess it's been two years now that it hasn't been on. I really liked that show, though.

my husband went to Sturgis and to the FTS in 2013. Glad he got to go, it was on his bucket list. He said it was fun yet scummy lol. They only open FTS for the Sturgis run which is only about 2 or 3 weeks a year so I can imagine them burnin it.
