This is an item in Boxoffice magazine, January 1946:

IDA GROVE, IA.-A cigaret started a film fire here at the King Theater. As one operator took the last reel off for the night, it was brushed against a cigaret his assistant was holding. A burst of flame was the result.

No one was injured and the damage wasn’t serious, but the theater, owned by Carl Mansfield, had to be closed for two days.
