Auctioneer Chad Green calls for bids Friday afternoon at a storage unit auction at Durose Storage, 512 E. First St., in Craig. About 25 people turned out to the auction, in which potential bidders were not allowed to step inside the unit or examine its contents. Auctions are a last resort for storage unit companies to recoup costs when renters fail to make payments.

At about a quarter to noon Friday, the curious and the hopeful gathered at Durose Storage in Craig. Some milled around the door that marked unit AA29 while others took shade nearby from the warm September sun. What lay beyond AA29’s door … well, that was anyone’s guess.
