Brawley Superior Furniture Burns Down In Morning Blaze

By Chris Furguson 

On September 14, 2012, Brawley Superior Furniture, the oldest continually running business in the City, burned down before sunrise. Crews from all over Imperial County, including Westmorland, El Centro, Calipatria and Imperial County, helped Brawley's firefighters battle the blaze. The 60+ year business is owned by Mary Miller, who said she wasn't sure if she would reopen the business due to needing to gut the entire facility to start over. Power was shut off by the city to businesses in the Plaza area to prevent the possibility of further fires starting. The cause of the fire was unknown as crews were continuing to douse the flames as of 7 am this morning. More information is expected from the city in time for our next print edition of the Weekly-Chronicle.
