A Providence bar has closed temporarily after an electrical shortage caused a fire on the roof.

The fire broke out at about 1 a.m. Thursday at Bukana's Sport Bar on Plainfield Street.

Firefighters said the bar was occupied at the time but everyone made it out unharmed.

Utilities were cut to the building, and health inspectors will need to inspect it before it can reopen.
