'Our flag was still there'

Posted: Monday, November 11, 2002

Four employees of R&K Industrial in Nikiski pose with an American flag, one of the few things that survived a Tuesday afternoon fire that destroyed the company's maintenance building.

The flag had been placed in the shop last year in honor of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.

From left are Mike Vincent from the scaffolding department, shop foreman Todd Vincent, safety manager Brad Hill and Tim Kirsch, mechanic. R&K Industrial, an oilfield services company that employs 50 people, is reportedly being overwhelmed by offers of help from the community.

Vendors, customers and neighbors are coming forward with offers of shop space, office space, the loan of equipment and moral support, according to company bookkeeper Barbara Blakely.
