The Destruction of the Estes Park Fire

By |

The fire yesterday that decimated the historic Park Theatre Mall in downtown Estes Park has been extinguished, according to the local Volunteer Fire Department, but the wounds to the town will clearly linger, writes the Fort Collins Coloradoan. As Norm Duecker, who owned and operated The Music Box in the mall for 22 years, tells The Denver Post, “I was in total shock. When I heard there was a fire, I thought it was going to be bad.” The building is about a century old and did not have alarms or sprinklers, reports Longmont’s Daily Times-Call. The Estes Park Trail Gazette has extensive photos and video (below) of the efforts to put it out.
