FIRE! FIRE! FIRE! ...that wasn't cool

one of the local watering holes that my band used to play at (used to now being literal as well as figurative lol!) has burnt to the ground. well, they DID need a new roof after the last time we played there

SOLOMONS, Md. -- Wind hampered firefighting efforts in Solomons Island, where restaurants and boats caught fire. Damages are estimated at $5 million.

WBAL-TV 11 News reporter Lowell Melser reported fire officials responded to the fire shortly after 12:30 p.m. About two hours later, SkyTeam 11 pictures showed the blaze continued to burn, destroying as many as three structures.

A preliminary investigation indicates the fire started at the Bowen's Inn and the wind spread the blaze to the neighboring Lighthouse Inn and apartment units connected to the buildings. The state fire marshal's office said the fire destroyed two pleasure boats stored at docks for the winter.


fortunately no one was hurt... it was a 5 alarm fire.

what will be missed is that was the ONLY place left on the island that had live acts play there... the other remaining one, Captain George's (formerly Harbor Sounds) just went out of business last month.

well, shit happens... hence the bumper sticker.

That sucks...maybe they'll rebuild...course that'll take a long time once they are able to release the crime scene...after they've figured out what caused it (arson or electical or accidental) and so on.

That's happened here in Tucson a time or 2...and both times was to the same place....except many, many years between the 2 fires had gone by...still it makes ya wonder.....hmmmm...

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

we weren't anywhere near it... and had nothing to do with it either! yep, we have plenty of other places to play at... we're going to miss going down there though... it's where all the local musicians hung out too.

Wow, brings back eerie, horrible memories of The Station fire in Providence (actually Warwick) R.I. a few years back. I had been to that club a few times, and if I knew Great White was playing that night... Fuckin tragedy!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

this place was only one step above "dive" category though... to loose a major venue like The Station though, THAT is a tragedy~!

I have been there...well...doesn't look like I'm going again
even if I do get up to *those parts* ...beautiful area...
and fires are always sad to behold. Change happens in a scary way.

I was in relationship for 2 years with someone who lived in
two worlds and one of them was in the geographical pulse of
Maryland...Annapolis. Now and again, we were out and about

Just a little food for thought.............
