FIRE DESTROYS 8-LANE CENTER IN EASTERN OHIO

Chestnut Lanes in Barnesville, Ohio, sustained devastating damage in fire that broke out late Monday morning.

Barnesville Fire Chief Tim Hall said the building is “pretty much a total.”

According to reports, nobody had been in the building since around 1 a.m., when the center closed for the night. A cause for the fire has not yet been determined.

The eight-lane center’s Facebook page has numerous posts from long-time customers offering condolences. In a Thursday morning post, the center’s owner offered these four words: “Thanks for the memories.”

While located in eastern Ohio, Barnesville is part of the Wheeling, W.V., metropolitan area. It’s known for its Pumpkin Festival, featuring a “Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off” that awards $2 per pound to the winner, held each September.
