Fire broke out in the MFA Bowling Centre in Horsham late last night.
The building, on the edge of Horsham Park, filled with smoke and the fire service was called at 11.30pm (Sunday, September 17).
A spokesman for West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service said: “We sent four pumps and that quickly became six along with an Aerial Ladder Platform.
“The fire was in the cladding roofing and we used four breathing apparatus, hose reels and jets.
“The reason we sent so many crews was because the building filled with smoke and they didn’t know where the fire was until we realised it was in the outside cladding, which made it easier to deal with.”
The spokesman confirmed the building was empty and no one was injured.
