Destroys East Side Building reports a fire very early this morning in a
historic one-time railroad roundhouse in Madison, Wisconsin which, among other
things, served as home to Human Head Studios (thanks Doug). Firefighters report
that no one was injured by the 2:30 a.m. blaze, the cause of which remains under
investigation. The story initially refers to the building as having been
"destroyed" in the fire, but later refers to the fire as having been "contained
to the back" of the building, so what damage the developer's offices have
suffered is not clear at this time.
We are all sorry to hear this at Runegame.com. But glad no one was hurt and hope there wasn't to much damage. Some of the Human Head Staff did work for Raven years ago, though, before leaving to form the new company.
The first story I heard this morning had an interview with the property manangement company representitive and he seemed to be taking it all in stride saying something like it's only the second fire at the building in 100 years.
At the end of the interview the radio news reader named two of the other businesses only saying one was a video game maker, which made me think of Raven at first.
