An early Tuesday morning fire burned down two large tobacco warehouses of Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia., the manufacturer of Fuente Fuente Opus X and Arturo Fuente cigars. The fire in Villa Gonzalez, near the company’s main offices in Santiago, Dominican Republic, completely destroyed large inventories of aged tobacco and possibly caused smoke damage to some other nearby storage facilities.

“We don’t really know how much tobacco we have lost,” said Carlos Fuente Jr. in a telephone interview from the Dominican Republic today. “But it was a lot—a lot of tobacco.”
