According to the Oxford Eagle, Oxford Fire Department firefighters were battling a blaze at The Brass Monkey and The Lanes bowing alley on West Jackson Avenue this morning. Firefighters have been on the scene since around 4:30 a.m. Because of the amount of water being used to battle the blaze, many parts of Oxford have low water pressure. A power outage on Tuesday night caused by a vehicle running into a pole flipped off the switch to the main water supply.

All lanes were closed until 7 a.m. At 7, the lane closest to The Lanes on West Jackson Avenue is the only one that is still shut down. Check the Oxford Eagle website for updates.

UPDATE 9/22: Updates from the Oxford Eagle confirm that the interior of The Lanes and Brass Monkey were completely destroyed by this morning’s fire. When firefighters arrived, the roof was engulfed in flames and they could not enter the building. An investigation into the cause of the fire will be conducted.
