Hmmm...

Wasn't there a fire in the residence attached to this same property a few months ago?

Peninsula Clarion 11/12/12
"By Jerzy Shedlock
Peninsula Clarion
Two structure fires busied local emergency responders at the end of Veterans Day weekend. The fires resulted in no injuries.

The first fire occurred Sunday afternoon. At 1:43 p.m., Central Emergency Services received a report of a structure fire along the Sterling Highway in Soldotna according to a CES press release.

The residence is located on the same lot as the Pour House restaurant.

When fire fighters arrived on scene the building’s manager, a neighbor and some good Samaritans had extinguished the fire. The building sustained about $500 of damage to an exterior wall, according to the press release."
