An overnight fire destroyed the gift shop and a guest house on the grounds of Bishop Castle in Rye. Mrs. Bishop tells News 5 she found out about the fire from the Custer County Sheriff's office.
The Custer County Sheriff's Office said the fire was reported at around 5:30 a.m. from someone passing by the area. Deputies said the castle's gift shop and an outbuilding were on fire and had collapsed when firefighters arrived. Bishop's Son-in-law, Scott Moore, tells us that the buildings are a complete loss.
Also, the lady that runs the shop lost her entire inventory to the blazes, and it is important to get this gift shop going so the Bishop family has an income.
