I live pretty close Cav Arms and it looked like there was a fire at the business last night.

Any news?
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 5:28:20 AM EST

Shit I hope not!

I just called the business line and the anwering machine came on stating their normal business hours - they don't open until 10:00am. At least their answering machine still works!

This isn't official from Shawn or any of the Cav guys, but I was working last night and we got called to it. Mesa and Gilbert did the blunt of the work and stopped the fire before it got Cav or Ameetec. The suites to the south did burn and there was some structural collapse. Ladder 204 of Mesa FD made a crucial trench cut on the roof which helped stop the fire. The fire never crossed the trench. I saw Shawn there he looked ok considering the situation and was talking to reporters. I think the only damage to Cav may be smoke and probably some water damage. Anticipate them being closed for a few days maybe longer as Gilbert FD still had a ladder up dumping water into the suites on the south this morning as I drove by on my way home from work this morning.

I was wondering what happened. I drive by there every morning on the way to work and there were fire trucks and a bunch of COP cars and a lot of water on the street. I hope everything is OK.

Everything should be ok. The fire was stopped about 3 suites down from Cav and Ameetec. They should only be down for the investigation and clean up. Maybe we could organize everyone once the smoke clears and help Shawn with any clean up and/or restoration that the shop needs. But I didn't see any damage to the physical shops but some of the stock may need to be reboxed and they are going to need new roll up doors as we cut them open for access.

I'm sure everyone understands it's a joke. I like both Shawn and Derek. But Shawn is my fav... being an AR guy and all!

Glad to hear you guys are ok. I heard the report on the radio this am and the first thought was "I hope everyones ok" then I thought "I hope their places don't get fried", then I thought.........."FIRE SALE!"

... Got up to work in California today @ about 4:30AM.

... Saw the location on the morning news at 5 and immediately thought of my Cavalry Arms friends. The thing I didn't catch, but my girlfriend did - "a cabinet shop".

... I knew they were to the east of Shawn's place, but I was still concerned. Looks like things will be alright - cool.

My dad was also on this call (Mesa FD E207) and he got some great footage on his camera from the staging area (Gilbert station 251 about 2 block south). Literally 75 to 100 ft flames. Pretty sweet I'll try to post it later when i can get a hold of it.

Glad to see that the damage was minimal to your guys shops.


BTW... I noticed the news van in the picture right in front of your shop. Was there any "angle" to the news coverage of the fire near a couple of "assault rifle" shops? Seeing as how this is the heart of the "Uzi Triangle", did the reporters have any raised eyebrows when they found out what your guys' shops were producing?

Did that little car shop move out of the N.W. corner of the building? (I haven't been there in a while)
