Fire at Metung; bakery, cafe, fish & chip shop all gone.

Post by zebedee » Nov 9th, '18, 10:50

Tuesday afternoon about 5:30pm a fire destroyed the commercial building on the south side of the lawns next to the pub and jetty at Metung.
The adjacent accommodation buildings appear undamaged, but the bakery, cafe, fish and chip shop are all burnt out.

November 18 the Metung Hotel facewotsit page reports:

"New Bakery, Pizza Shop and Vietnamese opening in three weeks. Great job Ray and the town is very grateful."

That puts them back in action about December 10. Judging from earlier posts, they'll be in previously vacant shops across the road from the burnt out building.
