Duck Run grocers sustain massive damages from fire

A family lost almost half a million dollars of property in a fire on Monday night.  Sometime around eight that night, the family had just closed their business ‘Super Tienda Molina’ in the Duck Run Three in Spanish Lookout when they saw the business engulfed in flames. The structure housed a large grocery store, a kitchen and two bodegas where thousands of dollars’ worth of grocery items was stored. Almost eighty-five percent was wiped out by the blaze before it was extinguished. The owners of the property told us that they opened the business some two to three years ago, and since then they have been adding to the property and invested thousands of dollars in the building. The owners say that neither the building nor its contents were insured and that they suffered massive losses in goods and appliances including refrigerators and freezers. While they refused an on camera interview, they told News Five that they are desperately trying to salvage what’s left behind because it is a family business. The Molinas said that while the building was wired, they do not suspect electrical causes and they don’t believe it was accidental, but they do not want to speculate that it was arson. Police and the Fire Department are investigating.
