business news in context, analysis with attitude

Dow Jones reports that Fleming Cos. has not yet figured out the cost of a fire that destroyed a 100,000 sq. ft. Colorado warehouse that distributed candy, snacks, cigarettes, over-the-counter drugs, and other items to c-stores in Colorado and the surrounding region.

Initial estimates were that the damage ran between $13 million and $15 million.

Two men have been arrested for setting the blaze, which has been officially blamed on arson. There also has been speculation that the conspiracy was connected to former Fleming employees, though that has not been confirmed.
