Denver Fire Claims Insulator
During construction on a new five-story apartment building on March 7, approximately 50 workers were on site when a massive fire started. Witnesses reported hearing two loud explosions and soon flames shot 200 feet in the air and ash rained down for several blocks. Two workers did not make it out of the wood-framed building. One of the men was Roberto Flores-Prieto, 29, left behind his wife of more than nine years, Evette and two children, Isaac 7 and Mikaela 2 years old.
Meyer Donates Vantage-Vac
Soon after the tragedy, Kent Thornbery of Rocky Mountain Insulation Corp. reached out industry-wide and obtained donations for an ongoing auction on Facebook. All funds raised go directly to the Flores-Prieto family. Greg Buric, President of Wm. W. Meyer, didn’t hesitate when contacted by Thornbery, donating a Vantage-Vac Insulation Removal Vacuum with a retail value of more than $3,500.
