Where there’s smoke

Baja Cantina

There was a nasty fire yesterday on West Washington Street. Heavy, dark smoke billowed from the the Baja Cantina and Sequim Consignment Co. for over an hour; these firemen were completely hidden by it most of the time I watched. As I left downtown this hook and ladder was joined by a second unit from Port Angeles. I later learned that the roof collapsed on both businesses and the building is likely a total loss. The building owner is insured but as she said to a reporter,”that doesn’t replace all that heart, sweat and tears we put into it.”

  1. That’s a fantastic picture. But what a heart-breaking scene. I can’t imagine losing everything you’ve struggled for years to achieve. I truly hate fires!
