• Service all heating systems and all gas-, oil- or coal-burning appliances by a technician annually.

• Install a battery-operated and electric-powered carbon monoxide detector in your home and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall. If the detector sounds, leave your home immediately and call 911.

• Contact a doctor if you believe you have carbon monoxide poisoning.

• Do not use gas-powered devices such as a generator, grill or stove inside your home, basement or near a near a window or door. Generators should be operated more than 15 feet from the home.

Grindstone Smokehouse owner plans to build after fire
Print Icon Posted On: May 13, 2017

The owner of a Westland restaurant damaged by fire is planning to rebuild his business.

"I'm moving ahead with every intention of reopening. We had a big staff meeting with pizza to talk about ideas on how to keep moving forward," said James Raptoplous, owner of the Grindhouse Smokehouse.

Located on Wayne Road just south of Ford, the restaurant suffered extensive interior damage during an early morning fire May 6. 

"We were going to have a big new menu launch and new uniforms. This is heartbreaking for everyone," Raptoplous said. "I think it is not as bad as the photos (indicated). I think it's easily  fixed with elbow grease and some two-by-fours."

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Westland Fire Department fire marshal division, which will soon be joined by insurance private investigators.

"It is still an undetermined cause of the fire. We can change an undetermined cause (based on additional information)," Westland Fire Chief Michael Stradtner said.
