Fire destroys scrapbooking store in Nashville

NASHVILLE – A scrapbooking store in downtown Nashville was destroyed by a fire on Monday night, according to the Brown County Volunteer Fire Department.

The owner of the Wishful Thinking Store at the corner of Pittman House Lane and South Old School Way posted on social media Tuesday morning that she was alerted at about 10:15 p.m. Monday that the store was on fire.

“Both my shop and my neighbors are a complete loss. My husband pulled up about an hour later, just as the fire department told us it was ok to go inside. We wandered around in disbelief and my daughter snapped some photos as we blinked back tears. Although it was dark out, we could tell it was a total loss,” she posted on Facebook.

Assisting at the scene were Fruitdale, Jackson Township, Southern Brown, and Hamblen Township fire departments, along with IU LifeLine ambulance and the Brown County Sheriff’s Department.
