                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)

                    BREAKING NEWS: Brass Monkey/The Lanes on fire

                    Oxford Fire Department firefighters are battling a blaze at The Brass Monkey and The Lanes bowing alley on West Jackson Avenue this morning. Firefighters have been on the scene since around 4:30 a.m. Because of the amount of water being used to battle the blaze, many parts of Oxford have low water pressure. A power outage on Tuesday night caused by a vehicle running into a pole flipped off the switch to the main water supply.

                    All lanes were closed until 7 a.m. At 7, the lane closest to The Lanes on West Jackson Avenue is the only one that is still shut down. Check the Oxford EAGLE website for updates.
