gone


My beloved Bozeman Hot Springs is gone. It caught on fire yesterday,and a good chunk of it is destroyed. What wasn't burnt was severely damaged from the smoke. I am pretty bummed about the whole thing. I worked there for over 2 years. Long enough to become the supervisor for the night crew. I met most of my good friends from working there. Now they have to tear part of it down, if not the whole thing. I really hope they rebuild someday.
It was a pretty exciting day yesterday - I was on the phone all day talking to person after person about the whole situation. I had 52 phone calls and 20 texts in about an 8 hour period. That is a ton for me! I guess it is good because now I can go to bed at a decent hour (I usually worked until about 1-2 am).
Here is link to the newspaper article in the local paper if anybody is interested in reading it. I am trying to find video footage from the news station. I had heard that they had some really good footage of the building in flames. If I find it, I will post it.

Oh No!!! Do they have any idea how and where the fire started? Had you been working that night? I am glad that no one was hurt.

It started in the attic. They are not sure how yet. No I wasn't working.

That's crazy.

Wow! That's so crazy! Most people only dream of having the building where they work start on fire and burn down. I hope they will be able to rebuild what was lost. That was a fun little place to go with the family.

Sad for their family and your loss of a job... and a gym... and social place to go!
I'm glad that you have the new job at least.

Very odd that it happened at all!

That is so crazy! It sounded like such a neat place, not to mention your job and everything! At least you made the friends and can get together away from work still :) Keep us updated on the story.

crazy! There were times when I was working that I wished the building would catch fire :-) Where are you going to work now?
