Low-life predatory bastards....

$20 Million in damage? Who are they kidding. You probably could have bought the entire inventory for $10K.

I smell a rat.

where in the articles does it say its the behringer warehouse?
The photo caption says "The blaze started around 10pm, igniting 150,000 litres of engine oil, mattresses, and a large amount of plastic."

either way I hope this doesn't slow down the delivery of that composer pro I've had my eye on

I bet the fire was started by an engineer employed by Behringer when told the gear needed more 'warmth'...

I haven't read every word of it yet, but I wouldn't be suprised if they were given a year to fix issues with their products.

Well, when business starts going down hill, there is always the "torch it" method.
