    Angry Havana, FL---Whiddon's Country Store falls victim to arson

    Whiddon's Country Store, which was loved by all in the community and surrounding areas, fell victim to arson.

    A man broke into the building to steal some things, and set a fire in the basement to cover his tracks. The man was later caught and confessed to setting the fire.

    Units from all over the Big Bend area, including units from Georgia responded. These units included Concord (then Coonbottom) VFD, Havana VFD, Quincy FD, Tallahassee FD, Lake Jackson FD (part of TFD), and Calvary, GA VFD. Units fought this fire for several hours, and poured tens of thousands of gallons of water on the building before it was out.

    There was one (1) fatality in the fire. The parrot what was kept in the storage room of store. Not to mention the thousands of crickets for fishing...
