A fire destroyed the contents of the second-hand store at 2151 Highway 99W in Corning. Firefighters responded to the Sept. 25 blaze around 1:30 a.m. where they found the interior and contents of the structure on fire. The cause is under investigation, but is believed to be from the air-conditioning unit, reported the Corning Volunteer Fire Department. The business owner, Hank Brown, said he plans on reopening the business in a new, temporary location until a permanent situation is found. Estimated loss from the fire is $125,000.
