Fire Destroys Historic Building In Downtown Dunkirk.

8/29/2015    12:00pm

An early Saturday fire has destroyed a historic building in downtown Dunkirk. According to Dunkirk Fire Chief Ron Dysert, the crews were dispatched to the fire around 7am Saturday morning. Upon arrival, they found the read of the building to be fully engulfed in flames.

“Before our mutual aid even got here the building was already three-fourths involved in the roof. The building was basically gone when we got the call.” said Chief Dysert.

The building itself is a historic building in Dunkirk and has been the home of Oldaker Manufacturing for over 50 years. Kenton Today reports Oldaker Manufacturing owner Pat Ream said it’s a sad day for him, “We’ve been here in this building since 1961 and everything’s gone. I don’t know what we’ll do. I don’t know whether we’ll rebuild or whether we’re out of business at this point I don’t know. I just have to check and see.”

Ream said his business employed seven people. Like the fire department he said it’s too soon to determine what caused that fire, but he does have his suspicions, “It started in the west end of the building, and I’m guessing at this point it looks to me like it might have possibly been wiring, but I’m kind of premature on that, because I don;t know, but there was a lot of old wiring in that building and that type of thing.”

The cause of the fire is unknown at this point, but it is being investigated by local and state fire investigators. Mutual assistance was provided by the Kenton, Ada, Forest and Arlington Fire Departments.

One firefighter was transported to the hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.

Your Body: Why Flip Flops Are Not So Great for Your Feet

Flip flops: They’re comfortable and are great for strolling the beach or poolside. But if you wear them too much, you might be at risk for some serious foot problems.

Flip flops offer no support for your arch and they increase the chances of injuries like sprains.

Try to limit how long you wear flip flops and don’t wear them during physical activity like running or backyard sports. Wear shoes that have supportive soles while walking and moving for long periods of time.

Lastly, make sure to put sunscreen on your feet, too. Sunburnt toes aren’t safe or great for showing off a pedicure.
