LOVELAND, OH — The community is trying to grasp the tragedy and look forward after the fire at the Loveland Stage Company’s theatre last week.

This week, members of the Loveland Stage Company are reeling after a fire broke out inside the town’s 1939 theater. No one was hurt in the Oct. 20 blaze, which firefighters say originated from heat lamps used to illuminate brand new stained-glass windows. The building, which has been home to the theater company for the past decade, suffered a collapsed roof and massive damage to the interior, but its facade remains intact.

Despite the damage, the community is optimistic about the theater’s future. At a meeting scheduled for tomorrow, company members will assess the possibility of performances returning to the theater. In the meantime, the Loveland Fire Department has set up a repair fund, and productions continue in a local high school.
