The fire this past Monday at Baja Cantina and Sequim Consignment Co. raged for about four hours. The cause has yet to be determined and announced. One thing is certain: it was devastating.

Enroute to a call, two passing EMTs saw smoke pouring from under the eaves. One stayed here and evacuated people from the buildings while the other responded to the call.

Sequim Consignment after

I worked for a nonprofit years ago that experienced a total loss fire like this at its operational headquarters. “Heartbreaking” barely begins to describe it.

7 thoughts on “Aftermath”

  1. It happens so quickly, and it is devastating, even if not personally involved. Cannot imagine the feelings of those who have been affected by it.

  2. This is just awful. And even if they’ve got insurance coverage, that can’t make up for all the blood, sweat and tears that put the business together and kept it going. Hopefully, they can make a new start in the near future!

  3. Heartbreaking is the word. At least no lives were lost, so the heartbreak is limited to property and business losses.
