MORGANTOWN -- The Joe R Pyle Auction Service held an auction Friday to sell off furniture, kitchen supplies, equipment and decorations to the former Back Bay restaurant in Morgantown.

More than 100 people attended the auction.

"It's a great turn out today unfortunately it's a bad circumstance. It's been a great restaurant in the area for years and years," Robert Phillips, Joe R Pyles Auction Service.
