Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Corpus Christi firefighters jumped into action Thursday morning after a fire could be seen coming from the front door of a popular downtown bar.

"We were dispatched to the Cassidy's Pub, and they had flames coming out of the building," said Michael Schmidt of the Corpus Christi Fire Department.

The fire broke out  at around 5:45 a.m. at Cassidy's Irish Pub on Water Street. It only took firefighters a few minutes to control the blaze, which they believe may have been started intentionally.

No one was injured in the fire, and the damage appears to be minimal.
