Fire Destroys Theater In Appalachia

An early morning blaze completely destroyed the Appalachian Theater here Sunday. According to Fire Chief H. W. Grubb, the stubborn fire was discovered at about 3:30 a.m. by a Negro cleaning the theater and it took the Appalachia and Big Stone Gap fire departments about four hours to bring it under control. Neither Grubb nor E. J. Skinner, manager of the theater which is operated by Darnell Theaters, Inc., of Buffalo, N. Y.,would attempt to estimate the amount of damage done by the blaze.
