Sunday evening, the old Putt-Putt Amusement Park location in Lubbock caught fire, just before 6:20 p.m. Putt-Putt had featured a miniature golf course, a go-cart track and an indoor building which housed video games and an eating area.
The fire broke out at 5110 29th Drive and was still burning as of 7:20 p.m. At least five Lubbock Fire Department units are on the scene and police have blocked off portions of 29th Drive, and the adjacent side streets.
Firefighters are also trying to keep the fire away from nearby office buildings, and the Lubbock Power & Light Vicksburg sub-station, which is near the Putt-Putt location.
No word on what caused the fire or if there are any injuries. KFYO News has been told that a group of homeless people were recently living at the closed amusement park.
