Mention the phrase Arcade Fire to most people and they think of the band, but for one operator in Spokane WA, the phrase has taken on an entirely new meaning. According to Kelsey Watts at KHQ News, a massive fire rip through a barn that Bullseye Amusements was using as a workshop for their games. While there hasn’t been an official determination of the cause of the fire, the article suggests that it may have had something to do with a furnace that was stoked too much on a very very cold day. While any arcade fan hates to see a barn full of games wiped out, the silver lining is that Bullseye Amusements still has other games on location that are earning.
“overall, customers of Bullseye Amusements should not notice a problem in the wake of this fire; business will continue as it has for the last 25 years. However, the few customers that were awaiting repairs or delivery will be impacted as the company works out the details in the wake of the blaze.
KHQ has photos of the blaze and an interview with Bulleye owning, Dave Winfrey on their website.
