Reef Nutrition survive a fire, arson suspected

Posted on Wednesday, March 31st, 2010 at 9:09 am by

Reef Nutrition, the California-based company offering a line of feeds designed to provide a complete and balanced diet for your reef, was in danger of burning down to the ground. Reef Nutrition shares office space in a building that was burned down by a suspected arson. The fire could have cause much more damage, but luckily, the portion of the building where the fire originated was built of masonry and contained no windows or doors. This prevented the fire from getting the oxygen it would need to continue to grow. Firefighters had the fire under control within an hour and a half, at which point the investigation began. It is possible that someone with prior knowledge of the space, entered the building through a hole they created in the fence. The hole was made in such a way that the alarm would not be triggered, and the investigation is ongoing at this time.

Reef Nutrition’s offices are on the second floor, right next to the burned down portion of the building. Although the offices did not burn down, they did sustain damage to a wall of glass-brick windows.”I’m amazed that my office is here at all, I’m so thankful,” said Randy Reed of Reef Nutrition on a KTVU news segment, “every one of these (glass-blocks) is broken this entire wall is shattered from end to end”. It seems that Reef Nutrition will be able to continue working out of their offices, so get your orders in!
