Fire destroys cabinet shop; owner says business will reopen

D’IBERVILLE — The owner of a D’Iberville cabinet shop that was destroyed by fire says the family business will be operating again soon.

Bobby Grimes Jr., made the vow yesterday after the fire destroyed the Grimes Cabinets & Tops building.

The Grimes family already has a building ready to house the business. They built it in 2005 after their original building flooded in Hurricane Katrina. They didn’t move in right away because of high costs and the slow economy.

Now, they have a new home ready and waiting for their business.

Fire Chief Gerald Smith said the old building was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived early Tuesday. There were no injuries. The cause of the blaze was under investigation.
