A view from the Arcadia Theater fire moments ago, as the fire broke through the roof and collapsed the second floor.

The Theater Fire

As you view these photos Sam took from the six-alarm fire now devouring the Arcadia Theater, feel free to do so while listening to a new track from one of Dallas' finest young bands,

The Theater Fire

. It's called

"These Tears Could Rust a Train

," from the band's new album

Everybody Has a Dark Side

. Ah, if only they could put out a fire.

Street vendors were peddling helados to passers-by watching the flames.
Coach Joe on the fire: It's "majestic." Yup, he said it. Really did.
Barking dogs on Lower Greenville...or not. Uh, lady, do you not see what's behind you?
Many of the 125 firefighters trying to put out the Arcadia fire were forced to watch from the sidelines.
