"Get out of here Lynn, get out of here now, it's on fire!"

Lubbock artist Lynn Day spends about half of each year at the Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis, South Dakota. This year after everyone went home from the rally, Lynn stayed behind to finish up some art and serve as caretaker. He was asleep in his trailer when the Full Throttle Saloon caught fire.

Lynn called into FMX's The RockShow to talk about that fateful night.

"As I looked, the bar was just engulfed, everything was just yellow flame and heat," Lynn said. "The fire was so hot, there was ashes the size of hubcaps three inches thick."

Lynn was saved by a local official. Moments after he left the property, canisters of butane near his trailer began exploding.

You've probably seen Lynn's life-size Dimebag Darrell statue at shows, and you also walk under a metal sign he made when you walk onto the Lonestar Amphitheater grounds. There is a GoFundMe account set up to help Lynn.
