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.

Work is now under way to reopen the theatre as a non-profit.

Seats installed in November 2018 per the Facebook page for this theatre. Maybe reopened by the end of the year.
