Everyone safe as fire destroys Warren building

A pile of burned rubble is all that remains of the building at 214 N. Wayne St., in Warren, that housed long-time retail shop D & D Bikes and several apartments upstairs. The building, owned by Salt and Light Properties LLC, burned in a fire last Friday, Dec. 22. The top floor of the building at 212 N. Wayne St. also was destroyed by the fire.

A retail fixture in Warren is closed for good, but no one was hurt in the fire that destroyed a building in downtown Warren on Friday, Dec. 22.

The owner of the building at 214 N. Wayne St., and the owners of the business that closed both expressed a positive take on the events of last week, despite their obvious losses.

“We’re blessed. Everybody got out alive,” said Jon Frettinger, of Salt and Light Properties LLC, which owned the building.
