— Firefighters reported "significant damage" Tuesday at Big Shots Entertainment Sports Bar & Grill in Fayetteville.

The bar, at 5112 Yadkin Road, was closed when the fire began, and firefighters had it under control by about 11 a.m. No one was injured, but the east side of the building was damaged, said Nathan Walls, a spokesman for the city.

Some nearby businesses were forced to close while firefighters worked on the blaze. Yadkin Road remained closed at noon, police said.
