First Person: Danville Fire
An Easter night fire in Danville was among the larger.
BJ's Steak and Ribs on Mill Street burned. The building goes back to the 1880's. BJ's has been there since 1982.
A man lost his business. Employees lost their jobs. Residents in adjacent apartments were smoked out for a while. A consignment shop needs extensive cleaning before it re-opens. People lost a restaurant they liked.
Walk around when you get a chance. How many towns of its size have a cable news operation, two competing and side by side jewelry stores, a skate board shop, a model train shop, plus several bars and restaurants?
Danville seems to be one of those places I visit only when something bad happens. I sincerely hope that changes in the future.
