Curtain catches fire inside Bass Performance Hall

Posted: Updated:

A stage curtain at Bass Performance Hall caught fire Saturday evening forcing the cancellation of a performance by the Texas Ballet Theater.

Fire crews arrived around 6:00 p.m. Saturday and only stage hands and security personnel were inside when the fire started.

Fire investigators are looking into the cause.

No injuries have been reported.

The main reason the Saturday performances were called off is because smoke filled the building.

Shows are expected to resume on Sunday.

The fire comes only two days after the death of philanthropist, Nancy Bass.

The creation of the Bass Performance Hall was one of her most celebrated accomplishments.
