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 o'clock.
The State Theatre was a one screen theatre that operated as early as the 1930s.
The Wheatland County Sheriff's office tells us that the cause of the fire is being investigated.
The abandoned theater building is not occupied.
No injuries have been reported.
Many of the windows have been boarded up after fire tore through the building years ago.
