Early Wednesday morning, 28th of September 2011, a violent fire occurred. Halogen lighting set fire in some cardboard boxes and caused the fire. There were 6 people staying in the hall in connection with an Erotic event, which was to be held the following day. Luckily no one was injured by the fire, but the hall was beyond rescue. It was only 4 months earlier, the Cultural Agency had made K.B Hallen a heritage building. However, it was discontinued in 2013.
Since the hall was ruined beyond repair, it was decided to demolish the building.
The demolition commenced on February 20, 2015. Read more and watch a video of the demolition from DR's website here..
