Fire Guts Delta's "Happy Harbor"

Fire Guts Delta's  "Happy Harbor"

Sacramento Delta -- An early-morning fire guts the Delta's "Happy Harbor" restaurant and bar that was closed and undergoing renovations. 

A long-time Delta resident says he awoke early Friday morning, July 11, to the smell of smoke-filled air and blaring emergency sirens.  He says he walked to the marina area and saw several firefighters pumping river water into the "Happy Harbor " building as flames ignited and smoke encased the air.  

Fortunately, he says firefighters extinguished the blaze before it engulfed vehicles parked nearby or boats docked at the marina. 

"This was a close call," he says, because boats and many RVs are parked near the burned-out building.
