An early morning fire in Highland Park Wednesday has claimed the warehouse, mill shop, and showroom for Reclaim Detroit. The fire is thought to be started by propane tanks, as explosions were heard before the fire. No injuries have been reported. The non-profit Reclaim Detroit is a leader in deconstruction—removing wood and materials from homes set for demolition and creating a variety of beautiful items for resale.
Their parent organization, Ecoworks, has started a fundraising campaign, which has raised $3,800 by Thursday morning.
