Late Saturday afternoon a fire consumed Sorzio's appliances in Revere. Building was totaled. Numerous explosions during the fire from the various items that were sold there. No one was hurt, but a total loss. Don't know if they are going to rebuild. Was a landmark with their old signs and display rooms. I know Robert has a picture taken in front of it during one if his visits to Massachusetts. It was a family run business and a lot of customers came out and lent their support.

Thatís a big fire (just looked on Boston Hearald).

What a shame, wonder what caused it.

I'm thankful no life was lost or anyone seriously hurt.  But for us appliance nuts, a member of the family was lost.

Sozio has been a "Household" name in the Boston area for a long time. What a shame. Glad no one was killed or injured.

We've been in the store a couple of times - sad to see this.
