It was arson—the fire this week at a Wilkesboro restaurant.  Police now say Wednesday’s fire under investigation there was set—possibly to cover a break-in and theft. (photo by Dave Poorbaugh, Carolina Realty)
Firefighters from several departments were called to 102 East Main to the ‘Still Food and Drink’ and found that someone soaked a roll of paper towels with liquor and set if afire behind the bar. Some cash was reportedly taken in the incident, and fire damage to the structure was put at about $3000, but adjacent businesses suffered even more from smoke and water damage.
