Area Fires Break Out; Court Square Tavern Burns

The lack of rain has made conditions perfect for brush fires which, when combined with recent indoor fires, has made for a spate of blazes in the past few days, David Hendrick writes in today’s Daily Progress. Particularly noteworthy is the fire that broke out at Court Square Tavern at 5am yesterday, evacuating 500 Court Square and shutting the business down for at least a few months; the condos only suffered smoke damage.

What’s interesting about the Court Square fire is that Sean Tubbs, of the Charlottesville Podcasting Network, tends bar at Court Square on the weekends. Sean has an extensive and introspective blog entry about the fire, about Court Square Tavern, and its role in his life — it’s well worth reading.
