“I was very saddened to hear of this fire and the loss of our business,” Gorman wrote on Facebook.
“I can’t imagine how hard it is for our customers to find a place to eat in the midst of all of this, especially when there is a shortage of food.
This is not the time to make rash decisions.
Please pray for all the families who lost loved ones to this fire.”
Boulder has had multiple fire-related fatalities since 2016, including a 2016 fatal fire at the Biltmore Hotel.
