At 11:57 PM on April 17, 2011, a catastrophic fire destroyed my property, which housed the Humane Society Thrift Shop, Ray's Collission, and my office. The structure was almost 15000 sq'. The blue garage housing Arnold Autowerkes on the hill in the back is OK. I waited a month before posting pictures or video. It was hard to watch.
Thank you to the EMA dispatchers, many fire companies who responded, volunteers who helped to clean up....
You are all heroes in my book! The building came down, and the lot is now clear. With five walls down, and a sixth wall failing, it was like watching the Titanic sink. The structure was not safe, and had to come down.
The Thrift Shop will reopen at 129 Cumberland St on June 2, 2011. I will not rebuild. I did not have replacement value insurance.
