Summary: (8/14/08) Everyone at the 4-C office is safe. No one was hurt in the Lutheran Social Services office either. That is the good news. The building and the contents are a complete loss. Penny Chase, Training Director at 4-C, was telling me that another wall fell in this afternoon and everything is smoldering. They are still putting on water.
The 4-C staff is very temporarily in some offices across the parking lot from the burned out building. They are already looking for more "permanent" office space.
Insurance will pay for many of the costs of rebuilding and refurnishing but surely there will be things that will not be covered by insurance. There has been a fund set up if you would like to help out with those replacements.
