HE SPARKED — PARKED IT HERE IN FORT WORTH, VANESSA BROWN, CBS 11 NEWS. THANK YOU. THE RAINBOW LOUNGE IS KNOWN BY CONTROVERSIAL BY POLICE. PEOPLE WHO LOVE THE RAINBOW LOUNGE HAVE BEEN COMING TO TAKE PICTURES AND SEE FOR THEMSELVES WHAT IS LEFT OF THE RAINBOW LOUNGE. NOW, THE OWNER TELLS US HE BELIEVES THAT THIS WAS AN ELECTRICAL FIRE. LUCKILY, IT BROKE OUT AROUND 3:00 THIS MORNING WHEN THE BAR WAS ALREADY CLOSING FOR BUSINESS. FLAMES ATE THROUGH THE ROOF OF THE RAINBOW LOUNGE CAUSING IT TO CAVE IN THIS MORNING. THE BUILDING IS BARELY STANDING AND WILL BE TORN DOWN IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THE END OF AN ERA IN FORT WORTH. THIS BAR HAS BEEN HERE SINCE THE 60s. ORIGINALLY CALLED THE 651, THE BAR MORE EVERRED FROM A WESTERN BAR INTO A GAY BAR. IT BECAME A HAVEN FOR MEMBERS OF THE LGBT COMMUNITY AT AWE TIME WHEN THEY WEREN’T ACCEPTED MANY OTHER PLACES. YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES OUR FAMILIES PUSH THEM OUT. THEY COME HERE. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE HERE THAT TAKE THEM UNDER THEIR WING. IN 2009, FORT WORTH WORTH POLICE AND THE EXTHE TEX ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE COMMISSION RAIDED THE CLUB LOOKING FOR UNDERAGE DRINKERS. THE RAID TURNED VIOLENT. ONE MAN ENDED UP WITH BRAIN INJURIES. IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE AMENDS, THE MUD WORKED WITH MEMBERS OF THE LGBT COMMUNITY TO CREATE AN LGBT POLICE LIAISON. IT DID MAKE AN IMPACT ON FORT WORTH AND CHANGE BEING HUMAN RIGHTS. THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY SAYS IT IS TOO SOON TO SAY WHAT WILL BE BELT THERE AND POSSIBLY APARTMENT BUILDINGS. AND ANOTHER GAY PLACE LEAVING THE CITY THEN. AND THERE IS. THERE IS NOT MUCH IN FORT WORTH.
