ANCHORAGE (KTUU) — A haunted house attraction once seen at the Alaska State Fair burned down Monday morning, and some nearby business owners are concerned.
The Dungeon of Doom exhibit was sitting in the parking lot of the American Legion Post 1 on Arctic and Fireweed, butted up against the side of Speedy Auto Glass when it caught fire early Monday morning.
It's the fifth structure fire Channel 2 has reported on since the beginning of the year. But the Anchorage Fire Department says it's too early to tell if the fire was intentionally set or connected to any of the other structure fires.
The glass replacement shop suffered minor burn damage to the building's sign and siding. The store’s manager, Gina Huskey, got the call around 2 a.m., and considered the possibility that it might be another case of arson.
“We don't know until they get finished with their investigation if it was related or not," Huskey said.
Huskey says Anchorage police and fire are reviewing security cameras installed in a building across the street.
She says she doesn't know who owns the exhibit, or why it was on American Legion property to begin with.
