From Mayor-elect Joe DePinto’s Facebook Post:

“I was heartbroken to hear about this fire that ravaged Freedom Training Center, Happy Feet Spa, and the Red Nail Salon.From what I’ve heard (and whats reported in this article) it sounds like an individual had started a fire to stay warm and once it grew out of control they took off leaving the building ablaze. This appears to be the source but the investigation is ongoing and we have some good people working on finding out exactly what occured.It is also my understanding that the property owner will try and relocate the impacted businesses to the other side of their property where there are empty spaces. Then clear and rebuild the damaged area.That being said it could take a minute for insurance to come through and not to mention the employees being out of work right before Christmas. If there is one thing this community does better than most places, its that we take care of our own. While I don’t have the info for the other two businesses (I’ll try and get that info) I did verify with Freedom Training Center that this is a legit GoFundMe and I would encourage folks to help them out if they are able to.Again, my heart goes out to any of those impacted by this devastating fire and I will update folks if I hear more details.”
