Wisconsin store closes due to fire

Ahardware store in Madison, Wis., has closed indefinitely after a fire caused an estimated $500,000 worth of damage Oct. 17, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

According to the article, no one was hurt during the Sunday night blaze, but Hillsdale Ace Hardware’s 2,000-sq.-ft. warehouse was heavily damaged by fire, and its 14,000-sq.-ft. retail space suffered extensive smoke damage.

Owner of this and four other area hardware stores, Bob Lochner said he was unsure how much of the stores inventory could be salvaged, and it would remain closed until at least the end of next week.
