Flames damaged a business in Wayne County on Tuesday. Alert Hook and Ladder Company posted photos of the fire on Facebook. The fire started around 4 p.m. Tuesday on Main Street in Honesdale. You can see the windows of Persist, a gift shop, blown out. The former VFW upstairs also has smoke damage. Bonnie Drake is a past department president of VFW 531. She calls the fire devastating for the businesses and the downtown as a whole. Bonnie said, "The building holds so many memories for so many people because it was a staple in the community, and it still is." Honesdale fire officials and state police are looking for what caused the fire here in Wayne County.
