Come Hell (Caused by a Window Heat Unit) or High Water (From a Fire Hose), CPA Will Be Back at Work ASAP

The Shelby Star in North Carolina reports that a fire caused by a window heat unit at a CPA's office resulted in "moderate damage" to the building. By the grace of God (or whatever) all of Greg Blalock's files were saved "as well as most of the computers" but, you get the impression that he's not going to let this little setback prevent him from client servicing:

[Blalock] said they would be up and running "as soon as possible," but he didn't yet know details.
It doesn't matter if he's surrounded by firefighters or at risk from smoke inhalation and/or falling ceiling tiles, this CPA will be filing tax returns tomorrow. COUNT ON IT.
