IN MUNCIE, INDIANA, A DOLLAR GENERAL STORE that had been closed after going into receivership experienced a major fire Monday morning. The Muncie Star-Press reported:
Muncie Fire Battalion Chief Jim Clevenger said the wares and cardboard boxes inside the storefront at 3040 N. Granville Ave. provided a “heavy fire load.” Clevenger said the storefront, part of a strip mall, no longer operates under the Dollar General brand, but a business there appears to be liquidating what remained of the Dollar General inventory.
Firefighters prevented the fire from spreading to the remaining four or five storefronts in the strip mall. “The guys just made a tremendous stop on this fire,” Clevenger said.
