FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WBAY) – The Fond du Lac Fire Department says careless use of smoking materials is the suspected cause of a fire that engulfed an adult entertainment establishment.

At about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, firefighters were called to The Other Place, 208 N Main St. The Other Place is listed online as an “adult entertainment club.”

Crews arrived to find flames and smoke coming from the outside of the building and extending up into the roof.

Firefighters attacked the flames from outside. They quickly extinguished the blaze, but not before it caused heat and smoke damage.

There was no one in the building at the time of the fire, and no reports of injuries.

The fire department says the blaze started on the west side of the building.

The fire department says the building is “uninhabitable until repairs are made.” The Fond du Lac building inspector was called to the scene.
