Downtown Business District
Thursday morning, December 15th, a fire broke out in the 400 block of historic, downtown Main Street in Lyons. The building impacted is approximately 5,000 square feet and had multiple small business, commercial tenants. The small, local businesses directly impacted include Rabbit Brush Gallery, Bellwether, Lovely by Nature, Farmer’s Insurance, Scope Accounting, and 3C Gallery.
At this time, the cause of the fire is under investigation. Emergency responders included Lyons Fire, Pinewood Spring Fire, Lefthand Fire, Longmont Fire and Hygiene Fire Departments. One person was transported to the hospital and later released. Until the investigation is complete and the Lyons Fire Department confirms that the fire is completely extinguished, no one is allowed inside the building. The building sustained severe damage.
Efforts to support and help the small businesses affected are ongoing. We are stronger together. The Lyons Emergency Assistance Fund has created a fund to help those business owners impacted. The website to donate is https://leaflyons.org/main-street-fire/
