The four-alarm fire at 240 Houston on Thursday evening shuttered several businesses... One of them, Discovery Wines, reopened last night. EV Grieve reader BaHa said that there is a lot of ceiling damage, so the overhead lights are out. They are getting by with clip-on lights. However, the refrigeration is working...
Tim from Discovery Wines left this comment for us:
We feel so very lucky to have only water damage and smoke odor.
We must have dumped over 300 gallons of water between last night and this afternoon -- I've never been so happy about a leaking ceiling in all my life!
We've still got a lot of electrical work to straighten out, but we reopened at 5:30 tonight (Friday).
Best of luck to our displaced friends and neighbors and a big thank you to the firefighters who saved lives last night.
