Fire at Historic Soo Theatre Under Investigation

A fire at the historic Soo Theatre in downtown Sault Ste. Marie is under investigation.

Three employees were inside the building when one of them smelled smoke.

They went into the theatre on Ashmun Street and saw smoke and flames near the furnace near the stage.

The Community Action Agency building connected to the theatre was evacuated for the rest of the day.

One employee describes what she saw.

“My heart is still sinking. I’m still catching my breath underneath me right now.  It’s just shocking and sad. We just want it to be prosperous and wonderful,” said Lola Kennedy.

Kennedy says to go to their website for updates on rescheduled events and classes.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
