Cabela's in Dundee to reopen Friday following fire

Electrical fire shuts down store for over a week


DUNDEE, Mich. – The Cabela's store in Dundee, Mich. will reopen on Friday following an electrical fire.

The fire happened early Wednesday morning and the store was originally expected to only be closed for a couple of days.

The Dundee police chief told Local 4 a light fixture caught fire at about 2:30 a.m. and started melting onto some Under Armour clothes. Since the clothing is flame retardant, it didn't catch fire but melted all over.

The building didn't suffer structural damage, but soot from the smoke and the compound that firefighters sprayed on the fire left residue on some merchandise, taxidermy and store fixtures.
Cabela's said it would still honor sale prices for its upcoming Warm Up To Savings and Let's Go Camping Dundee retail promotions through Sunday, May. 12.
