Fairfield Comedy Club Damaged From 5-Alarm Fire

FAIRFIELD (CBS SF) — Firefighters extinguished a fire hours after it was reported at a comedy club in Fairfield Friday night.

“It’s a smoky situation,” Fairfield spokeswoman Gale Spears said.

The amount of smoke caused the fire to be escalated to five alarms, she said.

The fire was reported around 6:45 p.m. by someone who was inside The Original Pepperbelly’s Comedy & Variety Theater, located at 849 Texas St., fire Chief Vincent Webster said.

The blaze may have started inside the building, he said.

The exterior of the two-story structure, built in the 1960s, remains intact.

The fire was extinguished at 10:16 p.m. Between 90 and 100 firefighters responded. One crew planned to remain at the club overnight, Spears said.

No injuries were reported; no other buildings were damaged.

The cause of the fire is unknown. Damage estimates were not available.

A fire inspector told Spears he likely would not investigate the building until Monday.
