Each of our HCC University groups over the past few years has enjoyed a crazy, casual Southern dinner of everything from BBQ, ribs, and all things fried from pickles to oreos. We may enter as strangers but we leave as new friends.
It is with regret that I must share the terrible events of the weekend. On Friday a car lost control and crashed into the side of the restaurant. Then during dinner on Saturday evening a fire broke out. I happened to be dining nearby and saw the fire trucks, police cars and ambulances that were fighting the fire and assisting the guests and staff.
Please keep Jamie, Doug, David, Amber and the rest of our friends at Firebonz in your thoughts and prayers. I am sure they will feel your support. As one who has experienced losing a home to fire, it is the thoughts, prayers and support from friends, family and complete strangers that makes all the difference in how get you through difficult times when you do not know how you will make it through the day.
Hopefully the restaurant will be repaired quickly so that the staff will be able to return to their jobs soon!
