Fire Will Not Stop Fort Bragg Florist From Deliveries

Posted January 20, 2005 4:30 a.m. EST

— A florist keeps filling orders even though fire foiled his flower shop.

Freeman's Florist, near Fort Bragg, was destroyed earlier in January.

Owner Arthur Freeman said troops overseas don't know the building burned. They keep placing orders, especially for Valentine's Day.

Freeman said he will keep selling flowers. He plans to rebuild the store soon.

There is no word on what caused the fire.
