                    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)
