Apacheland, a Western movie set and tourist attraction near Apache Junction that was heavily damaged by fire last month, will not be rebuilt.
"There was not any insurance, plus we lost the income from all the (merchant) rentals," owner Sue Birmingham said Monday. The cause of the fire, which started on the second floor of a restaurant, hasn't been determined.
The set was built around 1960 and served as a backdrop for movies including "Charro!" starring Elvis Presley. The last major film, "Blind Justice," was shot there a decade ago. Since then, shooting has consisted primarily of commercials and miscellaneous fare such as a Playboy video.
One building, the Elvis Presley Memorial Chapel, was spared in the Feb. 14 fire. Birmingham said the chapel will be converted into a restaurant.
