JACKSON, MS (WDAM) - Firefighters are investigating what sparked an early morning blaze at a downtown Jackson nightclub geared toward gay and lesbian customers.

The blaze at Dick and Jane's began just before 5 a.m. Firefighters say fortunately, no one was inside at the time, and no one was injured.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control fairly quickly, but had to block off capitol street for nearly two hours while they worked to investigate the scene.

A cause has not yet been determined.
