I just want to start off and say how greatly appreciative I am to be able to fight along some of the greatest men and women who fight in our fire service. That said I am NOT appreciative to people running their mouth and bad mouthing the people who were involved in owning the land/building. The Knicos are great people and I never ever had one single bad thing to say about them. The newspaper was reporting that the Knicos were in Bankruptcy and that everyone now assumes that the fire was started because of that. They were NOT involved in the Bankruptcy process. They sold the rights and business name to a New York based company called Crownbrook Debco llc. The building was still owned by the Knicos. They were the landlord. The new York based company then ran the company into the ground and then they had to file for Bankruptcy because they couldnÂ’t survive in the business. Crownbrook is in the process of selling the company to the Ohio based company called Coll Materials. They now are moving their facility to the Allentown location. I am just frustrated how people hear one story then they ultimately assume people are doing it for the insurance money. There are shady people in this world but there are also great and nice people in this world too; such as the Knicos are. They would do anything for anyone at any time. So in ending people need to listen to the facts before they ultimately make their decision.

I live just off Route 191 down the road from the building. Thank God no workers, home owners or fireman were hurt during the massive fire. I saw amazing teamwork when I left for work & upon returning home the day of the fire. Fire trucks from all over coming & going to assist. Hopefully the cause of the fire will be determined so that the endless guessing of what happens comes to an end.
