A faulty electrical circuit set a fire that gutted Waterman’s Seafood Company on Route 50 and took firefighters almost four hours to extinguish on Oct. 5, 2012.
Just over a year later, the restaurant is hosting its re-launching party in an all-new building today, Friday, Nov. 1, with a ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration.
“We’ve been here for 30 years,” co-Owner Jamy Davy said. “We’re trying to set up for the next 30.”
When the flames wrecked the old Waterman’s building, the owners decided to start from scratch rather than rebuild within the old structure.
