STRATFORD -- An early morning fire Sunday heavily damaged the Rumours Cafe strip club on Barnum Avenue and is being blamed on faulty wires involving the heating system, fire officials said.

Firefighters were called to the one alarm fire around 8:40 a.m. Sunday. Fire Marshal Brian Lampart said no one was injured during the fire but added the blaze caused "significant damage" to the building.

"They will be down for a period of time," Lampart said.

The Sunday morning fire was the second time in less than 12 hours firefighters were called to the club. Lampart said at 7 p.m. Saturday evening the fire department responded to a fire behind a locker in a changing room. After the small fire was put out, the club closed for the evening, he said.

Lampart said management returned on Sunday morning to clean up the mess from putting out the Saturday evening fire when another fire erupted. The town's fire department returned to find the building engulfed in flames, he said.
