Disaster averted

Posted: Tuesday, July 31, 2001

It's a great day! We had a fire at Don Abel Building Supply over the weekend and thanks to the combined efforts of Juneau Alarm and the Auke Bay/Lynn Canal Fire Department the fire was extinguished and 60 people still have jobs. Our sprinkler system knocked the fire down and the fire department finished putting it out. All involved did an outstanding job. The fire fighters stayed to help squeegee 2,000-plus gallons of water out of our store. The men and women of the fire department were not only professional and efficient, but also generous with their time and helpful in starting our clean-up efforts. By the time we opened on Saturday morning most of our customers were unaware of the evening's excitement. We want to thank everyone who helped us save our business and our jobs. It could have been so much worse. It's a great day.
