It took two fires to destroy a cabin at L'Auberge de Sedona on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 27 and 28. The first fire, probably caused by a faulty heating lamp, caused about $75,000 worth of damage to the cabin on Monday afternoon. Shortly before 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, a second fire burned the cabin to the ground. Damage was estimated at $300,000.

When a plate of freshly-rolled dolmades makes a surprise appearance during an interview, it illustrates exactly what Shirley and Demetrios Fournos have been doing in Sedona for the past quarter of a century — serving others.

At the end of October, the pair are retiring, closing their intimate and eponymous Fournos Restaurant to spend more time with children and grandchildren.
