Catco Restoration Company worked around the clock to remove fire and smoke odors and clean up after a 3 alarm fire early Sunday morning at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis, MO.

St. Louis firefighters responded at 5 a.m. to a fire in the mechanical room above the theater lobby. The Fox Theatre lobby had the greatest amount of fire damage but the smoke odor and residue spread throughout the theatre, covering approximately 5,000,000 cubic feet.

Catco immediately began arranging Odorox equipment throughout the commercial facility to eliminate the smoke odors. As quoted by the River Front Times, "high powered air purifiers running overnight reduced the smell to a faint aroma of barbeque by Monday afternoon".

The "Jersey Boys'' shows that were scheduled to play at 2 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday were cancelled, but the theatre was completely clean and deodorized for the shows to resume on Tuesday for the sixteen performances remaining for the season.

As they say "The Show Must Go On" and so it did - by Tuesday, the Fox Theatre was back in the game - thanks to Catco and Odorox!
