One day after a raging fire in Davison destroyed a building that is part of the Hank Graff Chevrolet complex, drone video of the aftermath has been released. That video is embedded below.
What Hank Graff Building Was Destroyed by Fire?
The building, which was formerly owned by Rayola Florist is located across the street from the Graff Chevrolet sales and service buildings. The Graff dealership's detailing and financial services had been moved to that building since its acquisition.
Multiple fire departments were called to the blaze on State Rd. in Davison Wednesday (1/12) around 8:30 pm. Firefighting efforts were coordinated by the Davison-Richfield Area Fire Department, according to the Davison Index. Crews from Elba Township, Burton, Lapeer, and Grand Blanc were called to help battle the blaze.
Davison-Richfield Area Fire Chief Brian Flewelling tells Mlive that the fire spread quickly.
“We had heavy fire involvement on the northwest corner of the building in the rear which quickly got into the attic and ran across the entire building,” he said.
Fortunately, no one was inside the building at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.

YouTube user 'jacuzzibusguy' captured drone video of the aftermath from the fire the following morning, accompanied by police radio reports from the night of the fire.
A good stretch of M-15 (State Rd.) had to be closed for several hours Wednesday night as firefighters battled the blaze.
At this time, a cause for the fire has not yet been determined.
