Fire Destroys Business in Downtown Brainard

By  | 

Grandpa's Grocery was gutted by an electrical fire that began somewhere between the first and second floor.

Storeowner Raymond Bohac says it's still too early to know what the future holds at Grandpa's. He was insured, but the building may have to be destroyed because of damage suffered in the fire.

The fire was the second major structural fire in the small town in the past two months. On January 19, an electrical fire destroyed the Klein center in Brainard.

Residents will now have to go to places like Seward, David City, or Columbus to buy groceries.
