Fire at Bowling Alley in North Fort Myers
NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. – All Star Lanes bowling alley off U.S. 41 is closed due to a fire Saturday night.
Bill Hanson has owned the alley since August 2010. He told WINK News the employees were closing up just after midnight, when the fire broke out. Fortunately, everyone inside made it okay.
“Everybody was fine, everybody got out safe. It was just kind of a scary time for everybody but there weren’t that many people in the building fortunately,” Hanson said. “It will be quite a big impact on my employees and myself personally.”
Hanson said fire investigators believe the cause was electrical. Sunday Hanson waited for an insurance adjuster to assess the damage, but said there was quite a bit of damage to the inside and outside of the building. He plans to reopen the business but does not know when that will happen.
