I can't believe my favorite pizza shop has leveled. It is disgraceful that a drug infested neighborhood could cause such disheartening act. I've ordered from that pizza shop since day one it opened its doors...peperoni pizza and a small side salad w/ranch dressing...oh and my canoli. I am saddened by this act.Its all the g-20 summit!
Damn tweakers.

Hey Joe and Bob... I have confirmed reports that it was a Meth Lab! Has anyone ever noticed "Macho Man" Randy Savage that sits outside his appartment complex near First Baptist Church? He's quite the observer... do you think he know anything about what went wrong in the meth lab??? That sucks Rhonda... I thought my sub tasted a 'lil toasty!

All three of you are idiots. The people who lived in the apartments above these buildings have lost their belongings and a place to live. One woman has an little child and you morons are cracking jokes.

It's trash folks like you that are exactly what's wrong with Mon City.

All of the basements are connected in those buildings. Barb Mayfield could have had a meth lab in there next to the row of poker machines.
And the stacks of number slips could have caused the fire. She'll be the next one you see hauled away in handcuffs.

Was it really confirmed that this was a meth lab? If so, I would venture to say that those in proximity to it's location knew it was there!! It's a shame that people would turn their head the other direction, even to the point of risking their own safety.

Anyone ever smell sulfur while playing poker?

i think it is a joke when people use this forum to make jokes about burnt pizza's. 6 families are with out homes and we lost our business. We live here in town and are happy to see the streets are getting cleaned up. But please think about the peoples lives you are effecting with all of the rumors being spread.

I feel bad for the innocent people that have lost their homes and that someon has lost their business.

I think it is time to bulldoze all of Main Street and just start over. This town is a piece of crap anyway. The biggest joke are the people that are in charge of the improvements for this scum sucking town.

Thanks for keeping Monongahela full of work and Beautiful. Kill off all of the people that are 65 and older then maybe the changes that need to happen will actually happen instead of it bein a pipe dream.

The people who lost their homes I feel bad about you losing your belongings and memories but your better off not living here.

Yes sir Big Daddy. People lose all their belongings and their place to live. Even more people now out of work because of the lost businesses and simple minded idiots need to wise crack. Too bad it wasn't one of their family members who this happened to. It be interesting how they'd be acting then.

I'm a member of the investigation and you are correct. A true cause has not been determined. Probably never will due tio the fact that the building was so unsafe to venture through that it's been raised.

Anything is possible so wisdom cannot rule abything out however a meth lab is also great talking points for conspiracy type people.

If you are a member of the investigation then you need to be reported to the authorities for stating such information...

For what YES? I did not state ANYTHING that was not already reported in Valley Independent reported and by the police in the paper as well.

My statement regarding a meth lab is was it is. Since it is unlikely a true cause will not be determined a meth lab cannot be deemed a cause or ruled out. Most likely it will never be known. Personally I do not see that as being a cause but who knows?

Get you head in the game YES and read the paper once in a while. You'll be amazed what you may learn.

As fast as that building is being removed I can see how there could not be a cause found...you guys have already removed the evidence! I have never in my years seen an investigation take such a short time.
