Unclear if LZ Army Navy store in Auburn will reopen after devastating fire

A fire is under investigation after first responders were called to the Auburn Plaza late-Tuesday morning.

Firefighters were called to the LZ Army Navy store a little before 12 p.m.

The fire was quickly extinguished, but The Citizen reports that the store was extensively damaged.


The scene was cleared around 3 p.m., and employees at nearby stores were allowed to re-enter about an hour earlier.

Owners of the store believed that the cause of the fire was electrical, but they weren’t sure how it started, according to The Citizen. He was not sure if they were going to be able to reopen. “We’ve been in business 38 years. We’re the only Army Navy store around. There is nobody else,” he told them. “I have no idea if we’re going to be able to reopen our business or not.”

An investigation into the cause is active.
