LOUISVILLE, Ky.  (WDRB) -- Fire has destroyed the Orleans Theatre in Orleans, Ind., Wednesday afternoon.

The emergency management director says no one has been hurt, but the fire has burned through the historic theater, which has roots going back to the 1930s.

Firefighters were still on the scene Wednesday evening.  Crews had reopened State Road 37 both directions through Orleans, which is in Orange County.

It does not appear adjoining buildings have been damaged, officials said.
