Diner receives new look thanks to loyal customers

Man's restuarant is back open for business after a fire forced him to close for two months.

And the owner, bear weller, says without his customers being by his side through the rebuilding process..

Opening up probably wouldn't have happened.

Bear weller//ownerwith all the damage that happened, i didn't think we would get it back that quick ((--ashley wheeler reporting--))we first met bear weller after a fire destroyed the trailer house parked next to the diner -- and ruined part of the roof..

Ceiling and did serious damage to the business's electrical wiring.

Bear weller//ownerwhen the fire hit i was really devastated and didn't think that i would be able to open back up, but now that i have, it's, just the feeling is greater than it was before...at the time..

Bear worried he may not be able to open his doors again..

But his loyal customers and friends made sure that it did.bear weller//owner so amazed at how the people reacted when it happened.

You know, as the trailer house was burning, i had people coming up and donating money, saying, 'here.

Get started opening back up.

We want you opening back up bear's customers donated everything from monetary donations..

Tin and even cedar..bill devoure//donated cedari knew they needed some help.

It was hard for him to try to get back in business after the fire and i thought well, i would help them this way.

And i started to come help them do some of the carpentry work but they just did such a good job i just let them have it bill devoure owns a personal saw mill and cut randon links for bear to update the look of the diner.

Bear says devoure came back week after week offering more cedar..bill devoure//donated cedar i didn't want him to run out and so, that's how that came about and i just kept checking on him and now that bear's diner is up and running again..

People from all over are ready to make the trek to nocona.

Paula haralson//custo mermy sister lives in denton and she was looking forward to him opening back up because they like it, too (laughs) and thanks to his giving customers -- bear says his diner is back and better than ever.

Bear weller//owner i grew up in a big town and i honestly don't think it would have happened in a big town like it did this town.

You know, everybody come together to help and it's not with just me.

If anybody's in need, they run and help 3 (--ashley--)new
