ELLENSBURG, Wash -- Two days after a fire destroyed the Darigold building in Ellensburg, the only things that remain are charred wood and twisted metal. For Ken Fyall, it's not easy to see his building like this.
"There are a lot of memories," said Fyall, "my kids grew up there."
The building has been home to his furniture restoration business since he bought the building in 1988. It has also been home to local artists who were attracted to its large windows. While bands used it because of its large rooms. Some bands just stored their equipment there, other like Ryan Bury of the band Sarlacc, used the space to practice and store their equipment. Now its all gone.
Fyall's son, Trevor, is trying to help them. He has set up a fund called the "Friends of Artists Donations Account" at the Central Valley Bank in Ellensburg. He is also organizing a fundraiser and silent auction on May 5th at the Moose Lodge in Ellensburg.
