ANNA MARIA, Fla. - The landmark Rod and Reel Pier Restaurant on Anna Maria Island is expected to be closed for repairs for about two months after Monday’s fire.

In the meantime, island churches are stepping up to help the restaurant's employees while they are out of work.

According to the Bradenton Herald, six churches have come together to offer financial help to the 30 workers.

The fishing pier is also closed while repairs are made.
