A grand shock has come over Master Speckles, upon returning from one of his many travels he had found his burrow in ashes. The burrow housing the Shire Map and Cartography Centre, also known as S.M.A.C.C. was completely destroyed by a raging fire.

Unfortunately the fire also consumed all of the precious maps and paintings young Master Speckles had collected during his travels.

A still smothering stove appears to have been the cause of the fire.

Master Speckles will be staying with his good friend the Dwarf Matassun for the time being.

Master Speckles: "This is awfull, allot of me work is gone. I would like ter thank everyhobbit for taking care of the S.M.A.C.C. while I was on them long travels and I hope all enjoyed their visits!"

Allthough the fire caused great damage, the integrity of the burrow is still intact and the burrow will be availlable for housing when the restoration is finished.
