Vape NW Out of Business Due to Fire

On 5/21, early Sunday morning a small shopping center caught fire in Federal Way, Washington. When the smoke cleared, the building housing several businesses was completely destroyed.

In the shopping center there was a Subway, a Grocery Store, a Restaurant and you guessed it, a vape shop called Total Vape that happened to be the headquarters for one of the biggest online vape retailers in the US, Vape NW.

No serious injuries were reported but a local firefighter did sustain a minor injury.

The shopping center was an older building that was built in the 1970s. It did not have a fire alarm or sprinkler system. Which could have made a difference if those fire safety features would have been installed in the building.

The cause of the fire is unknown.

Without question Vape NW has made a large impact on the online vape retail industry in just a short time. The domain name was purchased on March 11,2014, according to Domain Age Checker. In just 3 years Vape NW has established itself as a top provider in E-Liquids, Mods and Atomizers. The website also generated more than 180,000 unique US visitors a month.

So what does the future hold for Vape NW? It is unclear if they will make a comeback but as for right now they are out of business. They report on their website that they experienced a total loss from the fire but no ETA on when they will be back up in running has been provided.

Even though Vape NW is a competitor we hate to see any business, especially in the Vape Industry to experience such a tragedy. We here, at The Cloudy Vapor hope they can recover from this disaster.
