Overnight fire destroys Full Throttle Saloon

STURGIS, S.D. - Fire crews have spent a good portion of Tuesday mopping up from a massive fire that destroyed the Full Throttle Saloon east of Sturgis.
All that remains is smoldering rubble of the building that became engulfed in flames just after 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Crews from the Sturgis Volunteer Fire Department were among the first to respond and find smoke coming from the roof of the structure. A passer-by reportedly informed the clerk at the Kickstart Convenience Store across the highway of smoke coming from the building.

Sturgis Assistant Fire Chief Shawn Barrows says crews tried to get inside but heat and smoke forced firefighters to battle the blaze from the outside in heavy winds. Crews worked diligently to keep the fire from spreading to nearby structures – including the convenience store across the highway. The building was completely on the ground by 3 a.m.

Barrows says there were no injuries. That includes the bar’s mascot – a donkey named Emmitt, who was rescued from the blaze.

Fire crews called in tenders from Piedmont, Vale, Newell, Whitewood and Fort Meade because of the lack of water on site.

Flames were intense at the height of the fire, forcing fire crews to temporarily close Highway 34 in front of the burning structure.

The bar, owned by Michael Ballard, featured such amenities as zip lines, musical stages and rental cabins. It was the subject of a television reality series, although there have been no new episodes since 2013.

It’s not known if Ballard will rebuild, and if so, if it will be in the same location. His Full Throttle Saloon has been in its present location since 1999.

Ballard has also started a liquor business he’s been working to make famous. A distillery on the property was destroyed by the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Fat Freddy I think knows that I am a local to Sturgis, well, the area anyway. M. Ballard has a very bad local reputation around here in business dealings. it has been the top topic of conversation anywhere here that he wanted out, and didn't want to take it in the shorts getting less than he put into it, and had an "accident". He will take whatever insurance he can collect, I don't see him getting the whole 10 million, and bugging back out to his distillery. My personal prediction is that he will sell the land or whatever is left to Rod Woodruff, the man that owns the Buffalo Chip. all's anyone here cared about is that Emitt the mule was safe. my 002.

Interestingly enough my very first thought upon seeing this thread and knowing nothing about the Saloon, the owner, etc.. was the potential of foul play.

That TV show sure didnt shine a positive light on him that is for fuck sure, thats pretty bad when you have your own show, all the production and engineering go into it towards pumping you up by the shorts, and they(the entire production crew)and all the editing on the planet, cant even make you seem like a good, positive person, kind of fucked up, but what do I know? absolutely fucking nothing! thats what.

    • So I will chime in, but it matters not I'd assume. Firstly doesn't the actual illness have to be in the shot for it to be considered a "vaccine"? Everything I have read says that these shots do not contain COVID. IE: the flu shot, actually contains the flu, so its a vaccine. A Ruebella shot contains, yep Ruebella. Measles shot, ding ding ding, contains measles... so everyone, those are vaccines. If that is the case the first push for intelligence is to stop brainwashing the public into thinking and saying "get vaccinated" when its not. I also read that when you get these experimental shots (as obviously there have been very limited to no trails, so no one know wtf will happen or not from them) you sign a waiver (probably unknown to the shot receiver) that basically states tuff shit if you get sick or die cuz you waived/signed away your rights to use this experimental (or trial) drub. And lastly, just like everything in life having the choice and voice to do for you what you think is best is what its all about. The government or bullying or peer pressure shouldn't dictate shot or no shot. If you are safe, then you won't get it, simple. I know more than 2 handful of people that are fully "vaccinated" and still got COVID. So wtf is that? Be safe everyone, be smart. Mask up, hand sanitize, keep your meathooks out of your eyes and mouth and you'll do just fine.
    • I remember the Left using false statistics about terrorism attacks to shout down people with legitimate concerns. Like "you have more chance of dying from your fridge falling on you than terrorism". Such a fake stat. when you consider you go near a refrigerator dozens of times a day and you may only come near a terrorist once in your life if you are unlucky.  Funny that the same form of manipulation of stats isn't applied to dying from covid. So yes, it is rare to die from a vaccine  but, guess what, it is just as equally rare to die from covid as a 45 year old. 
    • There has to be some form of responsibility attributed to the employer since they mandated the form of vaccine. A lawsuit seems appropriate in those circumstances.
    • side effects suck, and can be fatal. Sad, but real life, and extremely rare. More chance of dying from a coconut landing on your head than from a shark attack etc
    • Agree with all that. Glad you got a shot, even if it was not ideal for you to do so.
    • https://thecovidblog.com/2021/07/11/robin-spring-saunders-45-year-old-baltimore-woman-gets-mandatory-mrna-injection-for-employment-dead-six-days-later/ TheCOVIDBlog.com July 11, 2021 Ms. Robin Spring Saunders. BALTIMORE — A 45-year-old mother achieved her goal of employment at one of the most prestigious universities in the world. But she never made it to her first day of work. Ms. Robin Spring Saunders received her first injection of experimental mRNA on June 21, according to her Facebook page. It’s unclear if it was Pfizer or Moderna. But at this point, it doesn’t really matter. She apparently was not thrilled about receiving the shot. But she did it as a condition of employment at Johns Hopkins University, which mandates the experimental shots for all faculty and staff. The adverse effects were almost immediate. Her cousin, Crystal Grainger, wrote on Sunday morning, June 27 that Ms. Saunders was experiencing life-threatening reactions. She was on a ventilator and suffered from brain and heart issues. Ms. Grainger, as some others have reported, said the reaction came after the second injection. But that would mean Ms. Saunders received two shots in less than a week, which is highly unlikely and very dangerous. Several family members and friends confirmed it was the first shot. The damage was too severe to overcome. Ms. Autumn Harvey, Robin’s daughter, confirmed that her mother passed away later that afternoon. Several others confirmed her death thereafter. From dream to nightmare It appears Ms. Saunders wanted to work with autistic children and earned credentials to do so. Her Facebook page indicates that she bootstrapped her way to the Johns Hopkins opportunity. She was working several jobs at the time, including Home Depot, Lowe’s and Amazon. She was hired at Johns Hopkins University to fulfill her midlife goal. Several friends and family members talked about filing a lawsuit against Johns Hopkins. It will be interesting to see if they follow through. Ms. Saunders is survived by her mother and daughter.
    • It was also reported that Santa Cruz's Instagram page was hacked and that's why it was deleted. I hope they return.
