DOWNTOWN — The people working behind the scenes at Second City have found a new, temporary home on Michigan Avenue after an extra-alarm fire torched their offices, according to a report. 

The Old Town comedy club signed a 14-month lease for administration offices at Tribune Tower, 435 N. Michigan Ave., according to the Chicago Tribune. About 70 Second City employees will move into the neo-Gothic high-rise starting Nov. 15, the Tribune reports.

The move will come less than three months after a fire in a Mexican restaurant blazed through Second City's offices at 1616 N. Wells St. The theater where stars including Stephen Colbert and Tina Fey cut their comedic teeth reopened a month ago, but rehabilitation of Second City's offices is still apparently far off. Meanwhile, the theater's planned expansion is pressing ahead and plans for a December opening.

A Second City spokeswoman did not immediately return a message.
