    My prayers are with these wonderful people. They are the king and queen of our community. You feel like family everytime you go in their stores. The employees are great, you never hear them complain.

    I work for IGA now and have worked for them in the past. I hope they get better soon so I can see their smiling faces again!!

    Get well soon. These are good people who employ local people. I am sure most of their employees will tell you they are happy to have jobs. They have been very generous with our non profit - speedy recovery to them.

    I worked in a Carlie C's IGA when I was 16, they were good people and I have no complaints. Best wishes to get well soon!

    I doubt it had anything to do with the minimum wage ghost. There would be alot of fires if it did. Some people just seem to get some kind of sick pleasure out of the misery of others. They do have quit a few stores but far from Krogers and Food Lion. My daughter worked for Food Lion and made minimum wage when she started but did get a raise after awhile.I dont know the people but I feel for anybody that has a house fire. and gets injured

    "Did the minimum wage ghost of karma got them"...

    Really?? If you are an employee of theirs and make minimum wage then there is probably a reason for that.

    As for the cause of the was probably from the right mixture of oxygen that met a fuel(paper,carpet,wood,etc.) which then met a heat source that inturn caused a chain reaction producing heat, light, and smoke which inturn makes fire..
    Or could have been a flame about this big
    that may have been the cause...just sayin

    These are good folks. I have know them for 4 years. Prayers go out to them.
