“My biggest concern is how we’re going to make up that funding,” Young told ABC10. “We’re still processing this but in the coming weeks we’re all going to get together and talk about how to move forward.”

He said a worker called him about the fire, but they don’t know the specific cause. Young noted they suffered another fire just weeks prior.
