Old West Studio in Tombstone catches fire

TOMBSTONE, AZ - Crews have extinguished a fire at a western re-enactment spot in the town of Tombstone.

The Old West Studio caught fire on Thursday afternoon.

Whetstone Fire Department officials says crews received the call about the fire at 4:15 p.m. and when firefighters arrived on scene, the building was fully involved.

The studio is located on the south part of the popular tourist town and was formerly known as Six Gun City.

Tombstone Mayor Stephen Schmidt says the stage used for the show there was made of wood and burned fast.

There were no reported injuries. It's unclear how the fire started and a damage estimate wasn't immediately available.

Tucson TV station KOLD reports that the restaurant burned down in 2010 and was rebuilt.
