Gascoigne Lumber is moving into new quarters in Everett, Wa., after a four-alarm fire caused more than $4 million to its longtime home in the Queen Anne area of Seattle.

The Nov. 10 blaze destroyed three buildings and two sheds leased by Gascoigne and Northwest Millwork. It spared one lone warehouse, which Gascoigne employees worked from in the ensuring weeks, using battery-powered lights. Their move to Everett was expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

A $15,000 reward by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives and a second reward of up to $10,000 by the Arson Alarm Foundation have been posted for information leading to the arrest of the arsonist behind the fire.
