Comic Den of Renton, Washington was damaged by a fire in its building on Thursday night, according to Renton Reporter.  The fire in the century-old building was started by overloaded circuits in one of the boarding rooms above the store. 


Owner Herb Wheatley told Renton Reporter on Friday that he planned to relocate to a vacant building. at least initially.  Some inventory was salvageable, according to the report, and because of the focus on new comics rather than collectibles, the inventory loss was limited.


Renton is the home of Wizards of the Coast.
