According to the Martinsville Bulletin, early indications are that the cause of the fire that destroyed the historic Rives Theatre in uptown Martinsville on Sunday night was not suspicious. Martinsville Deputy Fire Marshal Andy Powers was reviewing drone footage Monday to help determine the cause of the fire. The building was insured and all indicators point to a fire originating in the attic with no suspicions of foul play.
