SHELBYVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Heavy machines began cleaning up here Tuesday what a massive fire took down last week. Four businesses perished, leaving a number of people without a place to sleep or work. And now it's claimed a fifth.
The fire that gutted a section of Main Street in Shelbyville left a sinking feeling in the gut of Cassandra Gray.
"I'm really sad about today. I've been working on my emotions all afternoon just trying to keep it together" Gray said.
Her counseling center, Creative Spirits, which helped hundreds in the community through court was destroyed. She returned Tuesday to retrieve lost files but found the walls crumbling down with the help of a backhoe.
"We got the file cabinet drawer. It was damaged of course but it's just a little piece of what was left of our counseling center and our agency," Gray said.
They've found companionship in the hardship. The problem is the fire is still burning new victims. George Banks owns The Computer Hawks. But he is being forced to move his successful computer business because of heavy smoke damage and because his landlord was concerned the building's integrity was compromised.
Most people are more worried about his other business - the haunted house he runs out of the same location each Halloween.
It's hard being that person and people say, 'W hat are you going to do?' I don't know. We have to go back to the drawing board," said Banks.
But both Gray and Banks have found new temporary locations to set up their businesses.
"Stuff you can always replace. People you can't," Gray said. "I think (the fire) will affect our town, the look of our town but not the love in it."
Gray and her daughter, Raechele, have set up an online account to help the fire victims. You can find contact information at www.creativespiritsonline.com.
