Knights Ferry News for August 5, 2009

POSTED August 3, 2009 4:23 p.m.

The Saturday morning fire in the 15000 block of Orange Blossom Road sent a big black plume of smoke into the air. The Ali family warehouse was completely destroyed. They conducted their wholesale floral business from that building. The first on the scene was Dave Rorabaugh with his backhoe, (he lives behind there on Horseshoe Road), to make a fire break. Many fire engines responded to the blaze.
