Firefighters have been putting down flames at The Lanes and Brass Monkey, located on W. Jackson Avenue, since early this morning.

Firefighters have surrounded Brass Monkey and The Lanes on Jackson Avenue since roughly 4:30 a.m. All lanes of Jackson Avenue were blocked off until 7 a.m.

Oxonians have reported low to no water pressure in the Old Taylor Road area and North Oxford.

A car hit a pole late Tuesday evening, which flipped the switch to the main water supply. This left the Oxford Fire Department with little water to fight the flames.

The cause of the fire is not yet determined.
