The Bottle is Back

May 11, 2012 4 p.m.

Spokane Fire Department’s Ladder No. 2 parks outside Mary Lou’s Milk Bottle during Thursday’s party.

The Bottle is back in business. Damaged by a fire last fall, Mary Lou’s Milk Bottle in the Garland Business District celebrated its restoration Thursday with hamburgers and milkshakes for Spokane firefighters.

It was owners Kris and Ed Ritchie’s way of thanking fire crews who spent several hours on Sept. 25 fighting the blaze that caused $300,000 damage to the historic bottle-shaped business.

Also on hand for Thursday’s first-day-back party were workers from Compass Construction, the company that spent seven months putting the business back together. Tom Sowa, SR
