A structure fire broke out at a Martinsville theatre Sunday Night. Crews responded to a fire at Rives Theatre around 8:45 p.m. Once at the scene they saw flames coming out of the building, according to Martinsville Fire Chief Ted Anderson. "This fire has a huge jump on us," Anderson said. He said the fire has already burned through the building's attic and expects crews to stay at the scene all night. The theatre was closed at the time the flames sparked, and no injuries have been reported. No word yet on what could have started the fire.
