Gordon Andrus' business is right across the street from Watson Grinding & Manufacturing, the site of the deadly blast. Two employees at Watson were killed.
Due to the explosion, two of the buildings Andrus owns were flattened, trapping the Corvettes inside. In fact, he says the cars are worth $1 million.
"Mine are flattened. It's sitting there with about $1 million in cars right now. We restore old Corvettes, and it's full of what used to be really nice cars," Andrus said.
No one was inside the buildings at the time of the explosion.
Andrus said he's grateful no one was hurt at his facility.
Just talked to the owner of Houston Corvette Services. They were right next to the explosion. This is a before and after. They had a million dollars plus in damage @abc13houston https://t.co/aPImEros0Z pic.twitter.com/fXnZMudQh5— Marla Carter (@MarlaABC13) January 24, 2020
