Ravenshoe cafe razed
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.
