Ashes in Fabric Row

Over the last several months Fabric Row in Queen Village has seen its share of excitement, and not the kind we like to boast about. A fiery blaze ripped through Jacks Fabrics destroying the entire plot it once called home. Empty remnants can still be seen at their old location of 4th and Fitzwater.

Fabric Row saw firetrucks once again last week when Anh’s Custom Tailors Cleaners caught fire. Not compared in damage to Jack’s but a set back non the less. Most of the building was destroyed and remains unstable, while they were able to preserve their window display. Upper floors of the building saw the most damage with bent siding and broken windows. Since the first floor received minimal structural damage, it wont take long before Anh’s is back up and running. Question is… When and what will occupy that huge hole where Jack’s used to be?
