Baldwin City -  Around 5 p.m. on Monday, February 12, 2018, a fire was reported in an area business located at 215 N Sixth Street. The location formerly housed the Pink Lady, which shut down in 2016, currently housed CopperLeaf Gourmet Foods, which had moved from Lawrence last year.  Soon after the fire broke out, it wasn't long before pictures of the fire began appearing in the Facebook group, "Citizens for the Future of Baldwin City."
The fire gutted the old two-story farmhouse, that is reportedly over 100-years old. As for what the future holds for the business, an unidentified representative told the Gazette, via their Facebook page,
"all I can say is we are devastated about our family business and we have no other answers for you at this time"

The building and all its contents, located behind Arrowhead Hardware, was a complete loss.  According to their website and Facebook page, the business sold a number of dips, jams, jellies, condiments, sauces, and bruschettas. The products were sold online and through a number of retail outlets.
