This was not your typical bonfire and there were no roasted marshmellows. We needed to demolish an employee building we called the Bachelor Quarters so we could begin construction of a new building. We contacted the Dayton Fire Department to see if they would be interested in a training exercise and burn down a buidling or two for us. The above photos are the result of their efforts. The first photo shows where the Bachelor Quarters once stood. The second photo was taken shortly after the fire started on the what we called the Baker’s cabin. We have no immediate plans to replace the Baker’s cabin, but it had gotten to the point that it was beyond repair.
We’ll keep you posted on our progress with building the new Bachelor Quarters. Thanks to the Dayton Fire Department crew for their help and excellent work!
