A fire broke out at the same club almost a year ago to the day due to an electrical issue. The clubhouse was destroyed in the fire. It has been standing on Grove Street since its inception in the late 1800s. The building housed a restaurant, locker rooms and offices, members said.

The state fire marshal's office said no one was in the building at the time and no firefighters were injured battling the blaze.

No further information was immediately available on the fire that broke out Tuesday morning.

But authorities noted Tuesday that the two fires are not connected. The 2017 fire was found to be electrical, while what caused Tuesday's blaze is being investigated by Reading's police and fire departments, as well as state police.
