Lindsay's Market fireFirefighters from White Pine were among those who responded to the call for the fire at Lindsay's Market in Dandridge this afternoon. In response to news of this tragic event, a commenter at the News-Sentinel's website wrote:
I used to live in Dandridge. This sounds suspicious to me. Food City was probably eating away their business and, well, you can figure out the rest of the story. It's spelled fraud.
Reports from White Pine firefighters who were at the scene of the blaze indicate that this assumption is not correct. Sadly, the owner of the market did not see fit to insure either the building-which he owned-or the contents therein. He has lost everything, and is said to be saying that his years of business in Dandridge and Jefferson County are at an end.
The lesson here is that if you own a small business that involves the sale of goods, insure at least the contents that you intend to sell to avoid losing your livelihood.
