I know I haven't been active here lately but I got to thinking how good a community this is and maybe some folks could be of help.

My workshop in North Minneapolis caught fire last week on Friday the 1st. Near a total loss, I lost all my instruments except my Gibson L50 which I had at home - I lost a 1927 Supertone guitar, a 1967 Harmony Classical, my Ome XXX, 1930s Kalamazoo conversion, Two Tubas, A Selmer Signet 100 Clarinet, A Normandy Clarinet, A LeBlanc Clarinet, all my luthier tools, all my shop power tools, laptop, cameras, bicycles, clothing and much more. My friends also sustained loss. I didn't have insurance... It was my last day there and happened while moving out.

I am trying to raise money for an independent Investigator to come out since it is my belief it was an electric fire that was in part mostly due to the negligence of the property owner. If I don't I may likely get stuck with judgements I couldn't and shouldn't have to pay. Fire investigation is very expensive!

If anyone could help in any way possible I would forever remain grateful. Please read the full go fund me and it will explain what I am asking for and how it will be spent.

Thanks for reading and god bless!

An awful story. If that happened to me, I would likely cry and need medication, while dealing with the loss. And if you are moving out from a rent situation, how will you preserve the site, gain access for the investigator? Wish you the best!
