Cabinet Store Fire

By  | 

The fire started a little after two this morning at the AWP cabinet store on A Street in Hiland Park. The owner, Jerry Weeks, is left with nothing.

Weeks' daughter says he owned the business for the last couple of years, but cabinetry has always been his love.

Weeks was notified about the fire almost immediately and was on scene while fire crews tried to put it out.

Cindy Sloan lives right next door to the business, she woke up her kids in case she had to evacuate the house.

"It totally engulfed the building, the side closest to my came tumbling down around four or so this morning," she says.

Witnesses say the fire started towards the back of the building and spread towards the street. Those details may help investigators figure out what caused the blaze.
