No insurance company will pay out a settlement until a thorough investigation is completed, especially since she's only been paying premiums for a few months. That will be a huge loss.

Those of you already accusing the owner of arson should be ashamed. I do not know the owner, and even though I've lived in Waverly for over two decades, I have never been to the Emmitt House. But to anyone who blames someone for arson without waiting for the fact, shame on you! Have you ever heard of libel? There were people inside when the fire started. The building was 152 years old. Have you never heard of old, faulty wiring or old dried out wood throughout an older building? Stop and think before you accuse anyone of something as serious as arson with people inside. Would you like to be treated that way if you were the owner and had just lost your building?

All you haters on this sight I mean where is the support? There are good people without jobs now people that could have been seriously injured and all I have heard is she burned it down. Well smarten up people it was the coldest night in 20 years the building is over 100 years old old gas lines combined with the cold what do you expect to happen.My daughter worked there and THANK GOD she was not there. Grow up people get a life and support your community. Prayers to all the families that will suffer from this loss. And prayers to you Pam may GOD be with you! And thanks for allowing my daughter the opportunity to experience The Emmitt House

I feel sorry for the people that lost their jobs, their businesses. However this is what she is known to do, she was struggling w making the money and was done with it that's why she had it for sell. Knowing she would get more money from the insurance rather than take a loss and sell it. Why was there an explosion on the second floor? What was up there? The bakery had been closed for days. The fire started in the back to make sure people had time to get out. Faulty wiring? Place had been there since 1861 no
Problems then 4 months after she opens it on the coldest night it's gone! Compare 600 thousand to 2 million, which u would rather have??

Lol people kill me, you wanna hate on the people saying things but we are not the ones who set the fire that caused everyone to lose their jobs. Lay blame on the guilty party. Why would anyone who loves a business soooooo much try to sell it within 6 months of opening it???? Especially in a depression. Not all of us are village idiot's. Like u.

In my opinion, the haters should be investigated. How far would they go to make a point?
