Skipper Buds - Sunday Update
I have tried to get in touch with Skipper Buds and they are not answering the phone. Here are some additional links to news coverage: http://www.suburbanchicagonews.com/newssun/news/797659,5_1_WA16_BUDFIRE_S1.article http://whyc.clubexpress.com/ http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-boat-fire_webfeb16,0,6260589.story http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-boat-fire_bothfeb16,0,6890698.story What I find interesting (and somewhat disturbing) is that there is almost no news coverage. For example, I have seen posts that suggest that 6 boats were damaged, 4 boats were damaged, etc. Most sites link back to the CBS Chicago TV station that had the helo up. More when I get more.
