An early morning fire shut down one of the state of Michigan's biggest tourist destinations. The fire broke out inside the 225,000 square foot Cabela’s facility in Dundee at 2:30 a.m. and spread soot and smoke odor throughout the interior of the building. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the fire that started in a ceiling light fixture.
The smoke and chemicals used to put out the flames spread a sooty film throughout the store and accordingly the clothing all had to go. The Rainbow International restoration company of Monroe quickly arrived on the scene to clean and deodorize the entire store, including the many animal mounts and other contents, and the store was reopened in 4 days. Odorox machines were used throughout the facility to deodorize the structure and contents, including the HVAC ducting.
