There were no injuries reported but plenty of damage after a fire broke out at a comedy club in Fairfield, near Napa Valley.

When firefighters arrived on scene Friday night, they faced heavy smoke and flames shooting high up into the air. Crews had to fight the five-alarm blaze from outside for fear the two-story building would collapse.

The Original Pepperbelly Comedy and Variety Theater was built in the 1960s.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the blaze.
