(Benld)--Sixteen fire departments were called to a structure fire at the Coliseum Ballroom Saturday evening in Benld. The fire started just after nine, as the Shadow of Doubt Band was performing in the ballroom.

Three people sustained minor injuries. The building was destroyed as a result of the fire. The Coliseum most recently served as an antique mall. The ballroom in its heyday hosted the likes of Duke Ellington, Ray Charles, and Ike and Tina Turner among others.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
