Fire Does the Work of Destruction Quickly and Thoroughly
Early Last Saturday Morning
Lightning is Thought to Have Been the Cause of the Disaster Insurance
is a Great Loss to Manager Bixler andthe
City of McCook Now What
An item of McCocks pride the New Bixler Opera House is
now but a heap of ruins and a reminiscence Fire thought to have
been caused by lightning was its undoing and early Saturday morn
ing the date
About three oclock Saturday morning the building was dis
covered to be ablaze and in less time than it takes to tell the story
the building was in ruins so rapidly was the progress of the flames
notwithstanding the heavy rain shortly before and the drizzle pre
vailing at the time
The fire department was on hand and did what was necessary
to confine the fire to the opera house which was beyond all hope of
salvation when the fire was first discovered by Manager Bixler who
was awakened from sleep by hearing something fall on the stage in
which end of the building the fire doubtless originated Manager
Bixler and family occupied residence quarters in the west end of the
building They succeeded in saving nothing of their effects so
quick was the destruction
The Bixler was completed last fall at a cost of 17000 and
was doubtless one of the best equipped and largest opera houses in
the state having a seating capacity and stage equalled only by the
largest cities of Nebraska Perhaps no one enterprise has been a
source of equal pride to the people of McCook and its loss is a mu
nicipal one
Manager Bixler carried insurance to the amount of 11000 on
the big property which cost him 17000 hence his loss is heavy
and in the same he has the genuine sympathy of the city of Mc
Cook He bears the loss with the courage and fortitude of a
Spartan however
No plans for the future are being considered at present but it
is safe to remark that McCook will not be long satisfied without a
suitable successor to the Bixler She cant afford to be
