"I'm just heartsick. This is our historic building... this is very damaging to our community," says Carol Connor, the owner of the Tall Chief Theatre in Fairfax.

A tornado on Sunday night ripped through the theatre and several other historic buildings along Main Street leaving a lot of damage behind. 

You can see shattered glass from storefront windows, mangled metal, downed trees and debris scattered across Fairfax.

The cleanup begins for this town of about 8,000 people.
