Skyforce10 is over the scene of a fire at the Double Eagle Saloon in Vineland, Cumberland County, N.J.

A fire burned through a South Jersey bar Tuesday morning, leaving the building badly charred.

Flames broke out around 6 a.m. Tuesday at the Double Eagle Saloon-Deck Bar & Grill along Panther Road in Vineland, N.J.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead, you could see firefighters dousing the blaze as white smoke poured into the air.

There were no reports of injuries.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation Tuesday morning.

The Double Eagle is a popular bar and restaurant in Cumberland County that hosts private events and public events, including a Cinco de Mayo party Monday night.

According to the restaurant's website, the Double Eagle opened in Vineland's New Italy neighborhood in the 1920 and was considered a speakeasy during prohibition. In 2011, the Double Eagle name was resurrected when new owners took over the Good Sports Bar & Grill.
