Russ Kendall's Smoke House is back in business just five weeks after a fire destroyed much of the business.

Co-owner Gordon Olson said the doors opened late last week just in time for the Grandma's Marathon rush. He's able to borrow a smoke house in Knife River to get fish back in the cooler.

Customers are flooding the shop with business and Olson said he has a new appreciation for everyone walking in the door.

"It was a feeling of elation," Olson said. "I was so happy to see them coming back in the door; they didn't forget about us. The customers it means a lot more to me now than it ever did before."

Olson said he's thankful for volunteers who helped clean up the fire damage and everyone who donated money get them back on their feet.
