Night fire destroys Commerce, OK business - KOAM TV 7

Night fire destroys Commerce, OK business

Updated:

The Commerce Volunteer Fire Department and Quapaw Fire Department responded to the scene Friday night at approximately 9:30 at 501 Commerce Ave at The Treasure Chest thrift store. Crews worked to put out the fire until 2:00 am. The cause has yet to be determined. The owner does have insurance, but officials say the business is determined to be a total loss.  

"Our thoughts are definitely with the family and everyone that's involved with this, it's bad, especially on a holiday," says Michael Hart, Mayor of Commerce. "I'm sure they were out having a good time, enjoying it with their family and all of a sudden they get a phone call that hey you need to get down here and you come down here to your business on fire, that's never good.  So definitely I hope they do have the insurance and that they can get this fixed one way or another."

Donations for the owner of The Treasure Chest are being collected at First State Bank in Commerce.
