Some disappointing news came to the residents of Bonfire Sober House at 10 Grove Street in Dover this past Thursday night.

According to a story from Fosters, residents of Bonfire were notified at 6pm on Thursday night that they had to leave the next day, Friday, January 31, 2020.  The Executive Director and co-founder, Andrew West, said he was able to secure places for all of the residents at other places, but not all the men took that option.  Some of them moved in to relatives homes.  West told the residents it was because of financial and legal issues that the closure was necessary.

The Foster's report cites a law suit between West and the other co-founder, John Eldridge.  West was served papers on January 23.

Bonfire Recovery had other services besides the sober living facility and, according to the report, those services are still intact and West plans on moving ahead to open another facility in the future.
