    That's totally not cool... was it La Vouges (I think that's the name)?

    that looks like the shop to me.....

    from a news article about it...

    "Frank Volz was not so lucky. He arrived at his shop shortly after the firefighters and watched as flames took over the bicycle and skateboard retail and repair store.

    “We got there at 9:30 and we watched until midnight or after and at first we thought they might be able to keep it from the bike shop, but it went throughout the ceiling and eventually everything erupted,” Volz said. “It was upsetting. I’ve owned that business for 25 years the business has been in Aberdeen for 88 years. So it’s very, very established and it’s disturbing.”"

    I'm not sure if that's it or not... You say this is in Aberdeen, not Hoquiam? The one I know is not on the corner of the building, unless that's not a pic of the shop itself.
