We had a fire in the business this morning. No one hurt. Lot of smoke and fire damage, two rooms. We will post updates on our web site. Watch for a smoked chicken feather and fur sale. Ken

The fire inspectors report says the fire began in the area around a ceiling fan in the restroom. Most likely the fan motor or wiring. Aaron was in the store and used a fire extinguiser to fight the fire and call 911 before leaving the store. He has been credited with saving the stucture from complete distruction.

Glad to hear that the fire was stopped thus saving complete devastation. Being a firefighter, I've seen far too often how merciless fire can be towards anything in its path; it does not discriminate.

It's amazing what can be done nowadays when it comes to removing smoke and water damage from a property that has sustained a fire. Fire damage is obviously a different story, but there is a lot of good technology for post-fire damage remediation.

Most importantly, glad to hear everyone is safe. You can't replace human lives!

Meh. You've been talking to Paul Davis of Lancaster and Complete Restoration too much. Once it gets bad, just let it burn down please. Thanks!

That would be Steve Rotay...

We both live in modern day tinderboxes covered with solidified gasoline siding. Once they get going, it's off to the races!

Cindi and I would like to update our customers and friends that we will not be open for business for at least the next month or more, while we decide on a recovery plan with the insurance co. We will not be able to open at our current location. Thanks for all the support. Ken

I didn't mean my above comment of "firesale" to be fraught with smack-assery. I was curious to know what one does with a gazillion items in a flyshop that has potential smoke and water damage. Morbid curiousity... not being a smack-ass.

That is a good question. The insurance adjuster has contracted a salvage company to evaluate our inventory. I guess we will wait and see how that goes before we look at other options.
We moved the office equipment and company records to a temporary office in Williamsport.
I will post an update about the inventory when I know more.

I was thinking about a downs box. Is there any other places to get one?

There is not. They are the only ones that make those boxes. You might have to wait a few weeks until they are able to sell anything.

That's not absolutly true.

The shop in Waterville has them as well as shops out west (mail order).

However, Hille's has the contract with Mike Down's and they are the assembler and wholesaler (as well as retailer).

I would wait and get it from Hille's, heck they'll even build it for you while you watch.

Hille's doesn't mold the plastic, Mike Downs does. Mike also creates the specialty pins that work in the down's system. All parts are shipped to Hilles and assembled there.
