STOCKTON — The Stockton Fire Department says their firefighters battled a two-alarm blaze at Stockton’s old Empire Theatre Sunday night.

Crews were dispatched to the fire around 7:20 p.m.

The fire department reports the flames caused “moderate to heavy damage” to the building. The surrounding vacant businesses also sustained minor damage.

This is the third fire at the former Miracle Mile movie theatre and entertainment venue since June, according to police. There was a fire there just last week.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
