BEDFORD - The Gold Club Adult Entertainment complex on South River Road caught fire Sunday morning, according to Bedford Fire Chief Scott Wiggin.
No one was in the strip club when the fire started around 8 a.m. Sunday, Wiggin said. The automatic alarm went off, notifying the fire department, he said.
Firefighters found smoke in the building coming from a front bathroom. Wiggin said the cause was likely electrical malfunction in the overhead fan in the bathroom. The building's automatic sprinklers kept the fire from spreading, Wiggin said, saving the building from heavy damage.
'Everything seemed to work' Wiggin said.
Firefighters aired out the building with fans. Wiggin estimates the fire did between $5,000 and $7,000 in total damages.
