Business Owner Evacuated Before Fire Spread
The owner of Brasilerinho below the MacDonald Hotel was evacuated quickly by fire fighter who he credits with a very quick response.
"We felt a strong smell like something was burning," said Jardel Fernandez who owns Brasilerinho located below the rooming house on Main St.
Firefighters ushered him out of his business shortly after he first smelled the smoke.
"They were very fast," he said.
Although he did not see fire in his own business, he could clearly see it in the first floor of the hotel.
"The fire was really high already," said Fernandez of the flames in the hotel office.
He was uninjured and waiting across the street to examine the damage to his business. He has not been able to go in to evaluate the damage to his store.
