The Flagler Playhouse in Bunnell, a Flagler County arts staple, was destroyed in an overnight fire.
Firefighters were first dispatched at 10:02 p.m. Sunday and arrived to find thick black smoke coming from the eaves and fire at the rear of the structure, according to a Facebook post from the office from Flagler Sheriff.
The fire spread quickly in the attic. Firefighters from the Flagler County Fire Department, Palm Coast Fire Department, Flagler Beach Fire Department and Ormond Beach Fire Department Station 92 battled the blaze throughout throughout the evening.
Flagler County Emergency Management and the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office were on scene to provide logistical services.
The Flagler Playhouse was built in 1957 and was once home to First Baptist Bunnell.
