Bangor Nursery Will Stay Open After Greenhouse Catches Fire Overnight
Some would say the spot that the Spragues Nursery and Garden Center occupies at 1664 Union Street is a great location with lots of space and visibility from the road.
But there's no doubt, the nursery has had its share of bad luck at that spot throughout the years.
Twice in a matter of 6 months back in 2021, motorists managed to crash into the black metal fence that surrounds the outdoor section of Sprague's nursery.
And then, this past Monday night, a fire broke out and damaged a section of the building on site and some of the greenhouse.
According to the Nursery's Facebook Page, the silver lining (if there ever was one) is that there wasn't any inventory in the greenhouse at the time of the fire.
"We are thankful that there were no injuries and that the greenhouse itself was empty. We already have a plan in place to keep things moving as we get our first load of plants in 15 days! Hard to believe!"
"Thank you to Bangor Fire and the Bangor Police Department for taking care of us last night. Outstanding as always."
The folks from Sprague's thank customers and community members who have reached out to show support in the wake of Monday's fire.
The post goes on to say that the retail store will continue to operate as normal, with business hours being Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM.
We have a call into Bangor Fire Assistant Chief Emery for an update on the fire. We will pass along more details when they become available.
