The Columbia Fire Department has concluded that the cause of fire in the True/False offices on Sept. 15, is unknown, but most likely an accident.
The fire that caused severe damage to True/False’s offices was not fatal. Tellers Gallery and Bar also suffered water damage, located below True/False.
Walt Goodman, assistant fire marshal in his report said that the fire started at a part of the office called the Bullpen and it is possible a malfunction with the microwave played a role. Goodman stated that he cannot rule out electrical causes, but added “there is the possibility of an unknown ignition source on the left side of the sofa couch, or the floor on the left next to it, on the basis of fire effects.”
According to the report, the damage was estimated at $250,000 and that the contents were worth $100,000.
True/False held a fundraising event on October 18 to offset costs incurred by the fire. According to the organization, its festival in 2024 will still go ahead as scheduled with no change to visitor costs.
The owners of Tellers are yet to announce a possible reopening date. The owners of Tellers have asked for the support of their sister restaurant Sake Japanese Bar and Bistro, as well as to watch social media to see any updates.
