A fire called in by a store employee at 8:13 a.m. this morning, Thursday, Nov. 29, was still ablaze at 10:25 a.m., according to Dearborn County 911 Dispatcher Jared Teaney.
The fire started in the Hope's Light Thrift Store, 1099 West Eads Parkway, U.S. 50, Lawrenceburg, he said. The store is in the JTS Plaza.
