A Clarks Hill Lake business, slowed by an arson fire Monday, is on its way to a comeback.
Tina Pentecost, co-owner, said that people have been anxious to help the bait and tackle store at Raysville Marina get cleaned up.
The store was destroyed, but is open for limited business.
Monday afternoon, Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens’ office ruled the fire as arson.
McDuffie County Fire Rescue responded around 5:30 a.m. Monday and found fire and smoke coming from the rear of the business, which has operated for more than 28 years.
The business incurred heavy fire damage in the bathroom area which had been added on to the store. The inside of the building sustained considerable damage to the back half and heat damage to the front, said MCFRS Asst. Chief Stephen Sewell.
