Homeowners insurance? Would it cover fire?

Houses can be built for 100,000 or less. I know this to be a fact. I just wonder what her former house was like??? HHHMMMMMMMMM......... I'm glad this lady got her settlement and will get a new house out of the deal.

This woman owns rental property in Blount County -- just up the road from her burned out property. Why didnt she move in to her rental property? I do have sympathy for her - on losing everything she had - BUT - she had options not to have to live in her little camper.

Glad there are some good people out there. While back when they did a story on my sister about building her a home or getting a home . Turn out they didnt promise her like they should. She serve our country and nearly die for our country. They didnt kept there promise. But Im glad people down in Blount got a good heart there .

I personally think she had to make a statement to those that caused her house to burn. I believe that is why she stayed on her site. If she had moved to the other property, she could have been quickly forgotten as she doesn't seem to have any type of political pull.
While I disagree with our sue-happy society, I do believe those that cause problems should step up and be responsible.

One would think that her settlement would equal the appraisal value of her home before this incident. Very interesting. Sounds a little opportunistic to me. Oh well.
