Gun Safe Owners Share Their Story: The Paradise Fire

The Paradise California Fire destroyed 13,972 residences and 528 businesses. When residents were allowed to return to where their homes once stood, the landscape was leveled except for a lone American Security gun safe. Although the hinges were burnt completely off, it still took locksmith, Mike Harper, 2.5 hours to drill out the lock and pry open the BF-7240.

When the door was finally opened Mike’s customer gasped with joy “the paperwork is still perfect – that’s all our birth certificates, pink slips, diplomas…look they’re perfect!” and looking over her gun collection she continued to marvel that they were in “perfect condition.”
