A local card and gaming store is destroyed by a fire.
However, within a day loyal customers have helped the business come back.
Jenks Firefighters say they responded to the fire at Alien Games around five p.m. on Thursday.
There aren't too many places card gamers can go in Green Country to battle with Pokemon, Magic or Yugioh cards but Alien Games was one of them.
"Watching it on fire like that was watching it burn a piece of me," said Sarah Giroux, a loyal customer.
"I cried. I cried," she said.
Crews were unsure what caused the flames. Firefighters say it was a total loss. No one was hurt in the fire.
"It was devastating for a lot of people because a lot of us had no where to go," said Hope Conder, another loyal customer.
The Muscogee Creek Nation helped move Alien Games into a place at the Riverwalk.
"It's pretty amazing because all this happened 24 hours ago exactly, and we're already in a new building, we got all the help we could need like a really big family," said Alien Games Owner Tom Anderson.
He was there when the place went up in flames. Anderson is going through the insurance process now but knew he couldn't leave the more than 100 loyal fans that call Alien Games home stranded.
"These people are like family," Anderson said.
That family was here when he says he needed them most.
