Georgia Theatre Ashes To Ashes

Morning Fire Destroys Georgia Theatre

The Latest From Athens-Banner Herald:

Fire destroys Georgia Theatre

Fire this morning heavily damaged the historic Georgia Theatre in downtown Athens, shrouding the central business district in smoke and knocking out electric and cell phone service to the area.
Firefighters were called at about 7 a.m. to the theatre, located at the corner of North Lumpkin and West Clayton streets.
Within an hour, the roof on the historic building had partially collapsed.
No one was in the building when the fire broke out, said Iby George, chief of the Athens-Clarke Fire Department.
"It appeared to have started on the second floor and broke through the roof shortly thereafter," George said this morning. "We're in defensive mode now. It's hard to say if they'll be able to rebuild. There is at least going to be extensive damage."
Wilmot Greene, the building owner, said the building is a total loss but exterior walls are "probably alright." Green said he hopes to rebuild and he does have insurance. Greene has already talked with organizers of AthFest about holding AthFest events in the Classic Center or at Legion Field.
Wade Koch lives on west Hancock Ave. and was walking home when he saw the fire and called 911.
"I was walking by and I saw all this smoke coming out. It was coming out of the entrance doors," Koch said.
Ric Wallace, production manager for Georgia Theatre said he was on his way to work when he saw the smoke and heard it on the radio. "We're watching a lot of hard work burn down," he said
Witnesses said flames were shooting 40 to 50 feet in the air. Electric service to downtown Athens is not expected to be restored until noon or later, said Sandie Turner, spokeswoman for the Athens-Clarke County government.
