A donation fund was set up for a Ferguson, Missouri brewery who suffered a fire early Friday morning. The Ferguson Brewing Company has closed its shop for an undisclosed period of time, following the fire. An officer, driving by the brewery, noticed smoke coming from the building and reported it to firefighters. Firefighters noticed the fire from their fire house two blocks away. Black smoke bellowed from the building, prompting a quick response from officials. Over twenty firefighters poured into the scene, four departments in total helped. Fortunately, no one was injured in the blaze.
The building located at 418 Florissant Road was a pillar in the community. Owner, Joe Lonero, fears he does not know the when the doors would be opened. The fire was a one-alarm fire, and brought under control in less than twenty min. The kitchen was heavily damaged, but the fire did not reach the second floor which held a banquet room. The building suffered water and smoke damage; which is devastating to the nearly 100 year old building. The Ferguson Brewing company has announced, via its Facebook, it will be accepting donations for the building. It is still not clear what the caused the fire.
Faulty wiring, inattentive kitchen management or a number of other factors may have caused the respected building to be set ablaze. It is truly devastating for the community, and it can happen at any time without much warning.
