Default Burned car wash

My favorite car wash burned down the other night. :'( I used to go there atleast twice a week, and it was the only do-it-yourself carwash in my town. The next closest one is more than 10 miles away. :( This carwash was always packed too. This sucks.


:(

the office above the carwash had some kind of electrical short and all the chemicals for the carwash were stored in the office. Apparently some of them were highly flammible. THe flames were shooting like 50 feet above the building. Took fire crews over 4 hours to get the blaze out.
