Investigation into a weekend fire that destroyed the South Main Family Dollar retail outlet on Saturday was still continuing, a spokesman with the Hope Fire Department confirmed on Tuesday. “Family Dollar has its own investigator out of Memphis, and the fire scene now belongs to them. There should be a report soon, but right now, the scene is still under investigation,” the HFD spokesman said. In a brief statement late Tuesday afternoon, Kayleigh M. Painter, who is Dollar Tree’s manager of Investor and Media Relations at its headquarters in Chesapeake, VA, said “We are thankful that no customers or associates were injured as a result of this incident."
