For Halloween Week organizers have been hosting a series of shows titled Inferno at the Castle.
Magic Castle announced that it will be having a Halloween Dance Party and Costume Contest on Friday, Saturday and on Halloween Night on Monday.
Several other events have been taking place at the famous venue since last week.
For the last week in October, The Magic Castle will be ON FIRE with the spirit of Halloween! the organizer wrote in their Oct. 29 post.
Matt Spence of the Los Angeles Fire Department told NBC Los Angeles that the fire damaged the attic and walls but the sprinklers were also triggered throughout the building, which caused water damage.
The fire reportedly started around 12:35 p.m. and was put out about an hour later, Spence said. He also told NBC that the fire seemed to have been caused accidentally.
Officials with the fire department are trying to assess the damage.
The Los Angeles Times has reported that maintenance was done in the building Monday morning.
