The Ozone Event Cen­ter in east­ern Travis County caught fire early Wed­nes­day. Of­fi­cials are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause of the two-alarm blaze, which also dam­aged the ad­ja­cent home of Ozone owner Rickye Hen­der­son. No one was on the premises dur­ing the fire, of­fi­cials said.

Fire of­fi­cials are in­ves­ti­gat­ing what caused an ex­ten­sive fire early Wed­nes­day at the Ozone Event Cen­ter and a nearby res­i­den­tial struc­ture in far east­ern Travis County.

The two-alarm fire broke out about 5 a.m. at 5101 Blue Bluff Road, near Texas 130 and FM 969, and caused ex­ten­sive dam­age to the struc­ture and an at­tached home, said spe­cial­ist Art Lis­cano of Emer­gency Ser­vices District No. 4. A wall of the struc­ture fell down and knocked down some power lines, he said. The blaze also af­fected an at­tached home, but no one was there at the time, he said.

There were no im­me­di­ate de­tails on the es­ti­mate of dam­age or the cause of the fire, which was ex­tin­guished by 6 a.m., Lis­cano said.
