BUFFALO, NY - Fire and rescue crews descended on Main Street in the heart of the city's Theatre District during the lunch hour in response to a fire call in a building adjacent to Shea's Performing Arts.
Two alarms were called out to battle an electrical fire in the basement of the Smith Theatre. The fire was confined to the basement, but the first and second floors did sustain some smoke damage. Shea's President Anthony Conte said the landmark theatre was not impacted.
The show "Late Night Catechism Las Vegas - Sister Rolls the Dice" that was scheduled at the Smith Theatre will go on tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the 710 Main Theatre. Performances of this show will remain at 710 Main Theatre through this Sunday.
