Remark after Beckley fire was insensitive I cannot believe the blatant insensitivity with which Beckley businessman Dan Bickey was quoted in your paper saying that although the downtown fire was a tragedy, it was a coincidence that "those buildings are where we want to put our park." I guess he doesn't realize nor care that several businesses were ... (more)

There is no one who has less of a conscience than Dan Bickey. He cares for no one but himself. This comment doesn't surprise me at all.

Maybe he would be a prime suspect na wait the city Arson investagitor has said undetermined cause so I guess the city will collect ins on the building unless somebody else demands an outside investigation.

There is nothing left to investigate. It has to be ruled undetermined. The wind caused the fire to burn too fast.

Have they checked the cameras at the federal courthouse with the number of camera that are around that building they should have the arsonist on either leaving the scene or carrying something to help the fire get a good start
Maybe even caught in the act. Bet they never checked the cameras. If someone is caught we they tell why they started the fire and if so why was it done to collect on issurance? Or is it to show beckley needs more equipment or manpower for the city or to justify the ladder tower they bought from city of martinsburg ?

Even though the cause of the fire was deemed undetermined, the news has said that Fire Marshal Kevin Price was moving forward with his investigation, focusing on interviewing witnesses and business owners, and looking at security cameras.

It was a planned and well executed burning to make way for the Mayors and Bickeys Idea. The Salvation Army was set up and handing out warm coffee.The Natural gas was turned off to the other places and people evacuated in a precise fashion and the streets blocked off and everything was nice and warm and cozy while the players performed their jobs perfectly. It coud not have gone any better it seems. But the Real test will be as they already stated they can not tell how it started ( any Real Fire inspector worth his muster can figure out anything ) BUT.. it will remain "unknown" so that , they can get together and get the figures right and the Insurance payments to the owners and then Bickey and the Mayor will after some time passes ( of course) so people "might forget" they will establish their plans and that Statue of Byrd that Bickey is drooling about so much.As if you need something else in WV with the name Byrd on it !!
