Lost a small local one about a week ago, Emory's, burned to the ground. They're looking into arson. Shame, it was one of the few decent places north of Seattle, and my wife's favorite. Put about 50 people instantly out of work.
Sounds like Benny The Torch out for insurance money
That's always the first thing I think of, and quite often it's true. But I'm not so sure in this case, and the jury's still out. We'll probably know more in a couple weeks. It was owned by a former mayor, fwiw.
