Mountain Businesses Set To Reopen
(Las Vegas, NV) The Carpenter 1 fire is all but over and the people affected are ready to turn the page.
Residents and businesses alike are being allowed back after two weeks of stress and a change in lifestyle.
Michael Crandall is the Senior V.P. of Siegel Suites, which owns the Resort on Mt. Charleston and tells KXNT what they have dealt with since the evacuation has been lifted.
“More than anything it’s cleanup. All the ash and soot that’s in our pond and chimney and HVAC system. We are working around the clock to get that cleaned up. Also, the power was out for two weeks so all of our product in the kitchen and bar is no good,” says Crandall.
But what about the employees?
“We own the Rumor and Artisan so we were able to staff many of our employees at those properties to get them shifts,” says Crandall.
Meanwhile, up Kyle Canyon, Director of Operations for the Mt. Charleston Lodge Thomas Schneekloth is ready for a big night on Friday.
“We will have a soft-opening Friday from 12p-5p for the public and then we will have a private dinner for the residents of the mountain. We will have live entertainment and let them blow off some steam after all the waiting they have been going through,” says Schneekloth
