Fire - burn

A fire at the Regal Killeen Stadium 14 movie theater, 2501 East Central Texas Expressway, temporarily closed the facility Thursday evening.

The incident was "simply an electrical fire," said Killeen deputy fire chief Cody Simmons. 

Multiple units from the Killeen Fire Department responded to the incident, which took place at approximately 5:30 p.m. "We did do a full structure response," Simmons said. The only action the firefighters took, however, was to ventilate the building with positive pressure fans.

Customers were evacuated from the theaters, and the business was closed for the night.

Calls Friday morning to check the status of the theater were not answered.
