Fire destroys 2 apartments

Two apartments located above Collie’s Mini Mart at Jeremiah were destroyed by a fire early Sunday morning.

A wall heater caused the fire at 12:01 a.m. January 13, said Hayston Roark, chief of the Letcher Volunteer Fire Department.

Roark said the store, located at 1659 Highway 7 South, suffered water damage. He also said Collie’s Mini Mart would have to be re-wired because the apartments and store were on the same power supply.
