After fire, RAIN offices to reopen

Minimal damage reported after small electrical fire

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Employees and clients of the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network (RAIN) are expected to return to their offices today after final clean up is completed following a small electrical fire in their Uptown offices last Wednesday.

“Thankfully the damage was minimal and no one was hurt, there was extensive halon extinguisher dust in the office and a detailed clean up will be required before anyone can enter back into the office,” RAIN officials said in a short statement issued via Facebook last week.

Clean up was expected to be completed today.

“We are excited to announce that the cleaning crew is finished and our offices will be open tomorrow morning,” the group said on Sunday. “Thank you for all your support and kind words and especially for your patience.”
