EAST HAMPTON, Conn. (AP) - A wedding reception has been unexpectedly cut short after a fire broke out at a Connecticut banquet hall.

WFSB-TV reports the couple was in the middle of cutting the cake Sunday afternoon when the staff at St. Clements Castle alerted guests to the fire.

East Hampton fire officials say the flames were shooting from the roof at a smaller building on the property. It took firefighters about an hour to get the blaze under control.

Firefighters say none of the nearly 50 guests were injured. The kitchen, roof and banquet hall suffered damage.

The cause and origin of the fire is still under investigation.
