Multiple Fires Break Out At Lucky Girl Brewery In Paw Paw
WWMT may have possibly saved Lucky Girl Brewery in Paw Paw after arriving early in the morning to investigate a fire that broke out overnight. When the crews arrived at 4 a.m. they noticed another fire had broken out and called 911 to come extinguish the new fire, as they reported early this morning:
Fire crews worked to put out a fire at Lucky Girl Brewing Company in Paw Paw, according to the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's office was called to the brewery on the corner of M-43 and M-40 around 12:25 a.m., Sergeant Paul Graham said. The fire was contained and put out by 1:30 a.m. The preliminary investigation shows the fire may have started in the electric panel on the west side of the building, Graham said.
Other Damage Done
There's no word on whether the string of incidents in the area are related to this fire, but just north of Paw Paw in Gobles over $100,000 of damage was caused by vandals to Dirtbag Brewery, when they discovered all of their windows and doors had been destroyed and smashed.
Trouble in the city goes back the past 9 months, when there was a shooting outside of Sporty's Pub in March of 2022, and 6 months ago when a man from Paw Paw was charged with arson to the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood facility. Crime continues to pile up in the area and we can only hope THIS particular fire can be recovered from and isn't in any way connected to recent vandals.
