Well it's been a very emotional 3 hours seeing everything that I have worked so hard for over the past month burn right before your eyes.

Both http://www.GrandRC.com and the new HeliExpress retail store have been dealt a serious blow tonight.

As I sit here in the warehouse still cloudy and smelly with smoke, I'm filled with so many emotions but most of all I just want to rebuild everything.

This is by no means a "major" fire bit it was rather large causing extensive damage to our showroom which had just been almost totally stocked with merchandise.

None the less, we are working on orders right now and will continue shipping without skipping a beat first thing in the morning although we may be setting up tables in the parking lot.

Thanks guys.

Cordless Drill battery/charger lit up. Fire was bad within 20 foot radius.  It's the smoke and water damage that killed everything else.

Sorry to hear about the fire. You are going to be really busy for a few days cleaning up and at the same time keeping the business running.

You have an excellent attitude for a small business owner, the kind that keeps this country afloat.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
