CHARLOTTE -- More than two months after a Pineville firefighter died on duty, one of the stores damaged in the fire is set to reopen Wednesday morning.

The Salvation Army is next door to the store that went up in flames from a lightning strike at the end of April.

Volunteer firefighter Richard Sheltra died in that fire from smoke inhalation.

Salvation Army store supervisor Kevin Brown says the business took a big loss after being closed and had to replace everything inside, but he says it's nothing compared to the loss of life from that fire.

"We're able to move on and open the store, unfortunately for their family, it'll be much more difficult for them,” said Brown.

Brown says he thanks the community for all the donations that helped restock the store.

It will officially reopen Wednesday morning at 10 a.m.
