Transcript 2 The Star / March 2,1984 Dallas Gay Bar Burns By Don Ritz DALLAS—The Old Plantation at 3911 Cedar Springs was completely destroyed by fire Tuesday, February 21. According to Denis Weir, general manager of the gay club, the fire started shortly after 3:00 a.m. The bar, which offered after-hours each night, had about 30 to 40 customers in it at the time the fire was discovered. Weir said that the Old Plantation disc jockeys announced the problem over the p.a. system and assisted customers in clearing out the bar. Weir said that all ofthe customers were evacuated without injury. Weir said one employee received minor burns to the back of the neck and hair when assisting a woman in leaving the restroom. 'Total loss from the fire was $500,000; $300,000 loss from the building itself and $200,000 from the contents," said Dallas Fire Department Investigator E.M. Rowe. "I don't know yet what caused the fire," said Rowe. "I'm still looking. It was possibly careless smoking; it was possibly set. I'm not even sure where it started, the damage was so extensive. There was a gas leak, but the gas leak may have occurred after the fire or during the fire {.as a result of the fire's heat). Or, it's possible the g.as leak may have started the fire." Rowe continued, "It's possible that the fire did start in the dressing room and when the fire was noticed, it already had a good start, so when patrons were cleared out through the front door, the air shot in up through the attic, and the fire really took off. The firemen had one hell of a time putting it out, the whole roof collapsed." Harriet Shaw, one of the owners of Moon Dreams, located next to the Old Plantation, said, "We were very lucky. We were closed and everyone was out of the building when the fire started. We had some smoke and water damage, but we've cleaned up and are back in operation already." Frank Caven, owner of the Old Plantation, said that no fire damage was done to the buildings next door because of the fire walls on each side.
