That's A Wrap!

 If you are a regular reader,
you remember the fire we experienced on August 4th in the industrial park we own.
It was tragic for us, 4 of the units a complete loss...the other 6 in that building
suffered smoke and soot damage.
The demolition and rebuild could not begin until our insurance company, 
and the tenants insurance companies were done with their investigations, that took a long time.
On January 14th, we obtained the certificate of occupancy for all of the units,
and the tenants were able to move back in.











We rent to small businesses, each unit has one office, one bathroom and a large warehouse.

We are both happy to have this ordeal behind us!

    1. the insurance company determined it was an electrical surge. the power had been out in the building for most of the day during the storm isaias. the fire started right about 8:10 pm when the power came back on. the unit across from this one had cameras, so we were able to pinpoint the time. this was an end unit, where all of the gas service enters the building and the tenant had 1000's of bottles of hand sanitizer stored inside, making it very difficult to get the fire under control!

      we are very happy to be up and running also. we had insurance for the loss of income, i was glad that was covered as well! nice to see you today ian!!
