Duttons Theater

We heard that there is a fire at the Dutton's Theater tonight. Does anyone have any information or updates about it?

Apparently started in the sign-smoke damage to the lobby. No one in the building when it broke out.

Too early to know how long they'll be closed or the extent of the damage.

They are good people, so pray for them if you pray.

news reports this morning are saying the fire started in a trash can in front of the theater and worked it's way up a wooden support to the roof where firefighters put it out.

calling it accidental but how does a fire start in a trash can? did someone accidentally drop a cig butt in the trash or something?

There was no show because the Duttons are on a break. So how did the trash can catch on fire?

Dutton fire

That's a good question. If no one was in there , who or what caused the fire. was there a garbage can inside the theater or was it a can outside?

The Duttons did a Youtube show on Thursday. They talked a lot about the fire

Hoping to re-open by the end of September, but not sure.
