Fire Destroys Haunted House in Southern Indiana

March 2, 2012

A haunted house at an old southern Indiana theater has been destroyed by fire.

The News and Tribune of Jeffersonville reports there were no injuries in the fire early Tuesday at the Psychomania Theater of Terror in Clarksville.

Co-owner Phil Granger says workers were inside the building Monday night making improvements to the clown room and a hospital section, but he says heaters and other equipment were turned off. He didn’t know how the fire started.

Granger says the building was insured, but the props inside were not. Granger estimated that 90 percent of the building’s contents were destroyed, and called the building a total loss.

He says the building will have to be torn down.

The haunted house employed about 30 people during the Halloween season.
