Fire strikes bowling alley

An early morning fire left The Lanes bowing alley and Brass Monkey bar and grill destroyed — and Oxford residents without water.

The combination of a high-profile fire and lack of water made for hectic start of the day for emergency responders and hundreds of the city’s residents.

The cause of the city’s water problem started hours before the fire, when a Chevy Tahoe ran off Molly Barr Road at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and struck an electric pole, knocking it down, according to city officials. (September 22, 2010, Page 1)

      Tuesday afternoon I received an official door knob hanger from the City of Oxford Water Department stating “Water will be off periodically during the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M on Wednesday, September 22, 2010.” They’ve been doing work on Anchorage road that has involved them cutting the water off a few times in the last month actually. It wouldn’t make sense for them to state on a document their future plans to cut the water off hours before the accident happened if the accident was the cause of low water pressure.
