VIDEO/PHOTOS: Firefighters spent Thursday evening battling a massive blaze in Midtown Atlanta at the site of the former Atlanta Eagle nightclub. The fire broke out shortly before 8 p.m. along Ponce De Leon Avenue at Argonne Avenue. A large plume of smoke could be seen from across the entire city. According to Atlanta Fire Chief Roderick Smith, firefighters immediately arrived at the scene and began to fight the fire in the historic section of the building. The more than 100-year-old two-story building behind the street-level facade was the portion on fire. The flames became too intense on the second floor and, because of the age of the building, firefighters evacuated as a precaution. Three ladder trucks arrived and began to dump thousands of gallons of water onto the blaze. Chief Smith says there were no water issues to deal with, but they were ready.
