Toledo fire crews are battling a fire at a former nightclub in East Toledo.

The fire broke out at the old Tony & Vickie's Cabaret, 500 Front St., just south of Main Street. The property was vacant.

The blaze was a two-alarm fire, said Lt. Matthew Hertzfeld, Toledo fire department spokesman. 

Flames could be seen shooting through the roof as crews fought the blaze from four different directions. Front Street, between Main and Oak streets, is closed to traffic. 

When firefighters arrived before 9 p.m., flames engulfed the north side of the vacant building. The fire was fought defensively, and crews remained outside -- and above. Aerial ladders were in place by 9:15 p.m., and firefighters sprayed water down on the blaze. 

A large group of onlookers has gathered to watch the fire.

No injuries were reported.
