    WRAL, has there been no more updates on this story? You do this a majority of the time with news in Sanford. You write a couple of sentences when the story is breaking never to mention it again.

    I drove by shortly after eight and saw this also. Pretty impressive with the flames shooting into the night sky and the entire Jonesboreo business district being blanketed by thick smoke.

    Must of been something major to start and burn that quickly, even in an old building. Sorry for Donald and Donna, hope everything is Ok.
