Fortuna business reopens after historic fire

FORTUNA - A Fortuna business which lost its home in the historic Star Hotel fire is getting a new lease on life.

Horizon Business Systems has relocated right around the corner at 425 N. Fortuna Boulevard across from Sport and Cycle. It’s been a challenge for the company getting back up and running. The fire destroyed much that has to be replaced. Construction is continuing and new products arrive every day. Owner, Loene Gossett didn’t know what to expect when she opened her doors today. She was relieved that the community remembered the re-opening date and was truly touched by the support from the friendly city.
