Might not be for us but it will be for those that are now without a place to work.

A fire is always a loss to someone, their home, their workplace, their lively hood. A fire is not a joking matter.

4 or 5 people working at the time of the fire, business must be pretty slow.

The general workforce is normally done by lunchtime due to incentives at most Indiana rv factories and the fire was reported a few hours later.

I'm sure it was insured. Buffett don't operate an uninsured plant.

Those 'incentives' are what kill the quality. Getting it done and getting it done right are 2 different things.

they just layed off 50 people and then the fire started. do you think someone was unhappy about the lay off. they said it started near the propane dock and they don't normally start on their own

Interesting, Forest River has opened an facility near McMinnville, OR within the last year. We see R-Pods and some larger units in the storage lot next to it. When passing on any week day employee lot is full of cars.
