Rockaways reopens Monday after '02 fire

(Columbia) Jan. 5, 2004 -  A popular Rosewood business destroyed by fire is ready to start rockin' again.

The new Rockaway Athletic Club has been rebuilt on Rosewood Drive in Columbia. Owners say the club will open to the public again on Monday at 5:00pm.

In March of 2002 a fire destroyed the original Rockaways, which was a part of a strip mall on Rosewood Drive. Some of the adjoining buildings were also damaged in the fire.  Officials blamed problems with a heating system for the fire.
