Dave Bogensberger has had a rough weekend after the family business, Juniors Tirecraft Tire Service went up in flames around 7 p.m. on Friday night.
“I finally got some sleep so physically I feel much better but it is what it is,” Bogensberger told BayToday this afternoon outside the fire damaged business located on Cholette Street.
Firefighters worked tirelessly Friday evening trying to extinguish the stubborn tire fire that fire officials suspect was electrical in nature. The fire damaged the building, offices, two trucks inside the garage along with a large amount of tires.

At this time Bogensberger does not know where they go from here.
“I have not even had access to the building yet,” he said.
“We have to wait for insurance to decide what they are going to do with the building and find us another one or not. It is still a bit early yet because it happened over a weekend it is hard to get a hold of people but I should know more in the next day or so.”
Despite the challenges that lie ahead, the Bogensberger’s want to get back to work as soon as possible.
“We are going to follow the process, get up each day and take one day at a time and get back open and get back in business,” he said.
“We want to get back up and running and serving our loyal customers as soon as possible.”
