An early Sunday morning fire completely destroyed the Cadillac Ranch on Old Smithville Highway.
“We put loads and loads of water on it, but there wasn’t much we could do,” said Tracy Dover with Cassville Volunteer Fire Department.
Dover said the call came out at approximately 3 a.m. and, when firefighters arrived, the building was completely involved. Districts 3 and 7 were called out to assist but they could not save the structure.
According to members of the band, which finished playing earlier Saturday night, they understood that everyone had left the building by approximately 12:45 a.m. Owners of the building were reportedly out of town and are in the process of coming back to Sparta.
