Firemen rescue damsel in distress

The Princess Theater has yet again fallen into dormancy after a fire just before noon on Thursday, March 20.

According to Oxford Police Department Sergeant Jon Varley, a lobby ice machine overheated and produced much smoke.

Some individuals inside Krispy Kutz, the Princess' neighbor, saw and smelled the smoke and called the fire department.

The Princess was closed at the time, and firefighters had to break through the glass front doors.

"It worked out kind of well for us," Princess co-owner Lindsey Myers said. "We were going to remodel anyway after our first year."

According to Myers, architects and engineers have been on the property since the first of the year planning renovations.

Varley said the building's structure is not damaged.

Myers said damage estimates and timetables are currently up in the air.

"We have insurance adjustors coming in and deciding what's damaged, what needs to be replaced," Myers said.

Myers said he was unsure when the theater might again open its doors.

"[The fire] pushed our renovation timetable up a little," Myers said, indicating they may proceed with planned renovations before reopening.
