Firefighters battled a three-alarm fire at a popular furniture store in Eastlake Tuesday afternoon. 

The fire sparked just before 2 p.m. 

Working inside Northeast Factory Direct on Curtis Blvd. saw the flames and ran out.

No one was injured in the fire. 

The Eastlake fire chief told News 5 they saw flames pouring out of the building when crews arrived. 

There were no sprinklers inside the building. Authorities say the building was built before sprinklers were required. 

The cause has not yet been determined but officials say the fire didn't reach the showroom so some of the furniture may be saved.
