Fire Burns Old Oxford ‘Gin’

The Gin has been empty for close to 10 years but was purchased recently. Workers began tearing down the patio late last week. That kept the flames from reaching Frank and Marlee’s, which was evacuated by firefighters.

Witnesses say the fire flared up quickly, engulfing the abandoned building within minutes. Firefighters fought to keep the fire from spreading to other nearby businesses.

The fire is under investigation. No one was hurt.
