Fire destroys a piece of Bladen history

A well known landmark for many Bladen county residents was destroyed by fire, Monday. John Bungert, owner of John's Upholstery says there was nothing he could do but watch. Neighboring residents of Bladenboro and Duplin remember the many faes of the building before it was an upholstery shop. Twenty years ago it was the place to hang out and listen to the juke box with your pals. Memories gone for residents and weary travelers who used the building at the fork of the road for directions and . Officials still have not determined the cause of the fire.
