Boren Community Center goes up in flames
A multi-alarm fire in Thayer over the weekend has destroyed the Oregon Country Music Theater that has hosted local and national acts alike.
The theater, also known as the Boren Center, was fully destroyed by the Saturday morning fire, according to officials on the scene.
The fire in the building, which had stood for over 100 years, started around 11 a.m. Crews say that the building is a total loss.
No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire is under investigation. See our photo gallery of the blaze and read this week's edition of The South Missourian News for updated information.
