Thick smoke and flames could be seen coming out of the building as far away as parts of I-95 in Bucks County and Northeast Philadelphia.

Fire officials said that the blaze was threatening neighboring properties and homes. Firefighters were still on the scene Wednesday morning working to put out the flames.

The fire forced several road closures in the surrounding area. Pennsbury School District had to reroute school buses and issued an alert regarding transportation delays due to the flames.

There were no reports of injuries.

Levittown Lanes, at 8815 New Falls Rd., was the town's first bowling alley, according to the Bucks County Courier Times. The venue featured 18 lanes, a bar and pizza shop, live music, leagues and birthday parties.
