Ro-Mac Lumber & SupplyA fire that spread through Ro-Mac Lumber & Supply‘s Mount Dora, Fla. lumberyard Sept. 24, caused an estimated $200,000. in damage, Ro-Mac’s Vice President and CFO Dan Robuck, III told the Orlando Sentinal. The fire ravaged a full warehouse at the facility.

Officials at Ro-Mac said they will rebuild. The Daily Commercial of Leesburg, Fla. shared a photo gallery of the damage caused by the blaze.

“It was definitely a pretty massive fire,” Robuck told the Sentinal. “I’m just glad it was contained to the one building and didn’t spread. All the buildings surrounding this one are filled with wood and other things that could easily catch fire.”

The cause of the fire was ruled accidental, caused by a electrical failure on a nearby power line. Ro-Mac staff thanked the local fire agencies in a Facebook Post Sept. 24.
