Fire at Bicycle Plant in TN

Does anyone here have a Lynskey Bike? Just wanted to give you a heads-up, they had a fire at their plant in Tennessee last night.

I just recently acquired a Lynskey Sportive on CL. It is a beautiful piece of metalwork and rides like a dream. I hope they are back at full steam ASAP.

Most of the building was undamaged by the fire.
Everyone got out and hopefully they'll be up and running again soon.
