Fire Destroys Popular North Sacramento Furniture Store

A fire broke out early Sunday morning, causing extreme damage to Casa Bella Galleria, a well-known furniture store located on Del Paso Boulevard in North Sacramento. The building was deemed unfit to reenter by the city, leading to its demolition.

Shane and Rhoda Curry, the owners of Casa Bella Galleria for the past 20 years, received a call about the alarms going off in the building. As Shane approached the store, he saw the glowing flames in the sky, causing great concern.

All that remains of the building are a few walls with murals painted on them. The local community showed their support for Shane and Rhoda by gathering near one of the walls. The outpouring of support has been encouraging for the owners, who were initially devastated by the loss.

Daniel Savala, the Executive Director of the Del Paso Boulevard Partnership, expressed his devastation that Shane and Rhoda’s business was affected by the fire. He revealed concerns that this incident might be part of a pattern due to a known arsonist operating in the area. Savala and his organization have previously reported this individual to authorities.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Sacramento Fire Department, and it is unclear if arson is suspected or if there is any connection to the potential serial arsonist on Del Paso Boulevard. Community leaders are eager to obtain swift answers and hope the responsible party is brought to justice.

Business leaders intend to assist Shane and Rhoda in expediting the process of rebuilding by helping with permits and meeting other requirements. The owners are determined to reopen Casa Bella Galleria before the end of the year, as they have received tremendous support from the community and want to continue serving it.
