Raven­shoe cafe razed

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

A COR­NER block on Raven­shoe’s main street now stands empty af­ter the cafe site of last month’s tragic gas ex­plo­sion was re­duced to rub­ble yesterday.

Two peo­ple, in­clud­ing man­ager Ni­cole Dempsey, were killed in the blast and another 18 were in­jured. Ms Dempsey’s fa­ther Hans Ny­holt, who owned the Serves You Right Cafe with wife Vicki, said plans were now afoot to sell the land and ad­mit­ted he was glad to see it knocked to the ground.

“It’s a good feel­ing,” he said. “It’s just rub­ble now.”

It took just over 24 hours to level the build­ing.
