Photos by Chuck SkipperPurchase color photos at www.BeeNews.com The Lancaster restaurant opened its doors for the first time since a February fire left the business and six upstairs apartments in need of significant repair.

Tenants in six apartments were displaced from their homes after the fire broke out on the second floor of the building at 205 Central Ave.

Since then, owners John Rooney and Laurie Kutas have been hard at work rebuilding the Lancaster locale. The preview night on Tuesday offered guests a glimpse of the new interior.

Complimentary “goat” pizzas, beer tastings and wine samplings were available for those in attendance. The Yelling Goat officially reopened Wednesday.

“Though it has been a long, long three-and-a-half months, remember: You can’t keep a good goat down,” the owners said on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
