Default West Lincoln/Mercury on fire

And guess who it's owned by....

Quote:
Houston firefighters battled a two-alarm fire Monday at the West Point Lincoln Mercury dealership in the 11600 block of the Katy Freeway.

The dealership's employees and customers were evacuated at about 2:50 p.m. when heavy smoke was seen inside the building, officials said.

Everyone was able to exit the building safely, Assistant Fire Chief Karen Dupont said.

Air 11 video showed thick black smoke pouring from the dealership as the fire consumed the used car showroom and parts warehouse.

There was no word on how the fire started.

The dealership is owned by Kenneth Stanley "Bud" Adams, Jr. who is the founder, owner and CEO of the Titans/Oilers franchise.

That's unfortunate. I wonder how many people will be unemployed and for how long.

The Bud went down to Houston, he was looking for a car to deal.
He was in a bind 'cos of his old behind: he was wantin' to make a mayor squeal.
When he came across this young kid buildin' up a team and playin' them hot.
And this bud jumped upon a hickory stump and said: "Boy let me tell you what:
"I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a NFL owner too.
"And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
"Now you have a pretty good team, boy, but give the Bud his due:
"I bet a trophy of gold against your soul, 'cos I think I'm better than you."
The boy said: "My name's Bob and it might be a sin,
"But I'll take your bet, your gonna regret, 'cos I'm the best that's ever been."

Default Bud Adams owned dealership burns.

2009 was a bad year for the football team owned by Bud Adams.

2010 is off to a less-than-ideal start for one of his other business.

NewsChannel5.com reports that a car dealership owned by Adams is engulfed in a "large 2-alarm fire."

Flames consumed much of the building housing West Point Lincoln Mercury on Monday afternoon.

Witnesses reportedly heard a "loud pop" at 3:00 p.m. local time, and the building was evacuated safely.
Who done it???

It doesn't really have anything to do with Bud Adams. He owns the place of course but he's insured and is not one of the people who might lose a job because of this.

Very interesting, but not as interesting as me..... If I had known this was Bud Adams' business I would've drank gasoline just to piss on the fire. To think I was this close to buying a car from there. I hope Jerry Jones doesn't own Don McGill Toyota or I'm ramming this truck through the showroom.
