EUGENE, Ore. - Southtowne Lanes went up in flames just weeks after Eugene Civic Stadium in the summer of 2015.

Now a new building has risen from the ashes, and one of its first tenants is ready to serve customers.

Bar and restaurant Viking Braggot Southtowne is open for business.

This is the second location for the local brewery.

They're the first tenant of the new Southtowne Plaza location, but other businesses are beginning to move in.
