Around 1:20 a.m. on April 21, 2005, fire ravaged Lumbermen’s, on Highway 89A in West Sedona.

The Sedona Fire District estimated the damage at $3 million and considered it the biggest loss from fire in Sedona in years.

Local bands, playing mostly outside at the Martini Bar from 7 to 10 p.m., say the noise ordinance, set at 60 decibels, is way too low. At 10 p.m., the law says, the level must drop to 50 decibels.
