Store owners await results of Farmer’s Market fire investigation
SPRINGFIELD (AP) — An investigation into a fire that destroyed a building at the Columbus Farmers Market last month has ended, but store owners are still awaiting its results.
The Times of Trenton reports that fire investigators have up to 30 days to determine the cause and that the delay is affecting some store owners’ insurance claims.
Matthew McCrink, an attorney for the market’s owners, says that they’re putting together plans to renovate and make the market “bigger and better.”
Terry Cassise, who sold snacks at the market, says she can’t move forward with her claim until the cause of the Nov. 18 blaze is determined.
The outdoor section of the flea market opened two days after the fire and undamaged indoor sections opened a week later.
