Just got word of an explosion and fire at Fairbanks Fur Tannery. Was told it burnt to the ground. I’m getting this info third hand from friends with animals and gear there that are pretty sure their stuff is a loss. Current/recent news posts confirm the fire but have not seen official reports of damage and loss.
Anyone with an interest there might want to look into the situation.
Prayers and hopes that nobody was hurt…..

Well that would suck if true. I just dropped 7 beaver pelts off

Edit. Never mind. Saw photos. Wow. I don’t see how anything in there could survive that fire.

Here is a link to help out owner Al recover from this disaster. I have only known Al for several years but he was very helpful to me this year and has been helping my DIY hunting friends for a long time and is a good guy.

That’s a real lousy deal! Any insight into the cause? Seems like a tannery could possibly be a target by the crazies.
