Small Fire Closes Ashley Furniture

A small fire has temporarily closed down Ashley Furniture.

Ashley Furniture President Ricky Martinez confirmed with us that they did have a small fire on Monday that caused some smoke and water damage. Some of the furniture was not salvageable. The cause of the fire is undetermined.   

Martinez said they'll have to wait for insurance to run its course before the store can reopen. He hopes it will only take a few days.

Customers who had layaway don't have to worry about losing their purchase. Martinez said the store didn't lose any records because they were stored in Lubbock. If you had layaway, you can still pay over the phone or at other locations.

You can call Ashley Furniture's corporate call center at 806-771-0073 for more information. You can also head to their website.

Newschannel 6 will let you know when the store plans to reopen once we get that information.
