I took a stroll the other day through Kingston upon returning from NIST in Washington. Often we hear fires in the news, but we fail at times to see the resulting economic consequences which occur the days following (closed businesses from smoke damage etc.). The above are several photos taken a few days after a fire of a nightclub in downtown Kingston, Ontario. The fire occurred prior to official opening of the night club so this is not another casualty story. I think the photos are good for reflection and need no comment from myself. Media reports and background information on the fire can be found here.
