Update on Ballantrae Fire
My last note indicated demolition of the Allardyce property was to start on October 2. For one reason or another there was a delay. As indicated before there are just so many disposal sites allowed to accept burned material. However, waste bins were delivered last Friday and demolition is now scheduled to start on Tuesday Oct 10.
John and Connie have also met with and selected a contractor to rebuild the house. Construction is scheduled to start immediately after the demolition and hopefully the new building will be closed in before the winter weather.
No report has been issued with respect to the ignition source of this fire.
Jane Bishop’s house has been worked on for the past few days and she is still anticipating being moved back in around the end of the month.
All funds collected have been turned over to the families involved.
