A fire gutted Simpson Galleries, a fine art and antiques dealer on Main and Isabella in Midtown just after midnight last Friday. The building, which was extensively damaged, is right across the parking lot from the Isabella Court building housing several Houston contemporary art galleries. According to the Houston Press, it’s the third art-and-antique-store fire in a year, although fire officials have made no comment connecting the blaze wth the two earlier incidents on Westheimer St. No injuries were reported.
