The Tecumseh location of Wineology will reopen Tuesday after a early morning fire Monday.

It broke out around 5:30am and took fire crews about an hour to bring it under control.

The office of the Ontario Fire Marshall is investigating the cause.

This fire comes weeks after the Walkerville location was destroyed by fire. That fire was accidental and originated in the kitchen hood and exhaust system, and caused $700,000 in damage

In a Facebook posting, Wineology owners said:

“Imagine the devastation of getting the call that your business; a place you’ve poured all your blood, sweat & tears into, is up in flames and is completely destroyed. It’s heartbreaking and something we hope no other person should ever have to experience. We are good people and make an honest living. Our team – loyal and hardworking.

As we’ve seen already, there has been a lot of speculation to not only the fire at Walkerville’s location but now, the unimaginable news of a fire at our second location in Tecumseh. It is with certainty that we’ve wrongfully been targeted. Wineology has been a successful business since opening its doors. We’ve since franchised and have big plans in motion to be opening more locations. As humans, it’s difficult not to assume when something seems too good to be true, or in this case – a complete nightmare.

We ask that you see through the whispers and speculations, and keep the entire Wineology family in your thoughts & prayers.

This is the second fire for the Tecumseh location. Back in April 2019, a small fire in the chimney caused minimal damage.

The OPP Essex County Major Crime Unit is asking that anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious or have information to contact them at 519-723-2491.
