"There's extensive damage to all their shelving, all their material and all of their popcorn," Main says.   He says there was minor smoke damage in two adjacent businesses, The Good Karma Dog Center and Nebraska Game and Parks office.

Their were animals inside at the time but they were not affected.  The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
