Jomhouri Movie Theater On Fire

By: Mir M.Hosseini


It was 4:03 am of Nov, 14, 2008 when the fire department was informed that the old Niagara Cinema was on fire. When fire squads from two nearby stations arrived at the scene they noticed large amount of smoke and flames. Extra forces from 6 other stations were quickly dispatched to the scene. After containing the fire from spreading to neighborhood buildings, the fire brigades had to break into the building because there were no keys and no person in charge. Using 10 water pipes, they succeeded in putting off the fire that had already destroyed the main hall and the entrance.
Fortunately, there were no casualties reported except for minor injuries. The Niagara Cinema was built in 1960s and was renamed to Jomhouri Cinema when foreign names were banned after the 1979 Islamic Revolution
