HARLOWTON- Flames and smoke rose above Harlowton on Wednesday as a piece of Montana theatre history burned.
Firefighters responded to the old State Theatre building just after 4 p.m. The State Theatre was a one screen theatre that operated as early as the 1930s.
The Wheatland County Sheriff's Office tells Montana's News Station that the cause of the fire is now under investigation.
The abandoned theater building is not occupied and many of the windows had been boarded up after fire tore through the building years ago.
