A smoky fire of undetermined origin was burning just before midnight at Bootleggers, 2518 Reynolds Road, between Heatherdowns Boulevard and the Ohio Turnpike.
Dense smoke was emanating from the roof of the single-story structure as firefighters poured water onto the structure to reach the fire inside. No flames were visible. By 12:30, the smoke had dissipated considerably.
Police blocked southbound Reynolds between Dussel Drive and Heatherdowns, and closed the intersection of Reynolds and Heatherdowns.
A sign outside previously had announced the club was closed for the summer and would reopen in the fall.
