UPDATE 11:44 a.m.: A Carilion spokesman says Daniel Knight is in good condition. And here is a little more info on Cathy Benson’s blog, The Botetourt View. End update.
I have learned this morning that a devastating house fire in Botetourt County yesterday evening was at the home of Daniel Knight, the owner of Blue Collar Joe’s donuts. Here is a link to reporter Lerone Graham’s story about the blaze. My colleague, Nona Nelson, who writes the Happy Wag blog, is a big fan of Blue Collar Joe’s and stopped in this morning to see how Daniel and his family are doing.
She was told Daniel suffered smoke inhalation during the fire and is in the hospital recovering. The Knights are such wonderful, friendly people. I pray that nobody else was hurt, that they got their pets out in time and that Daniel has a rapid recovery.
I’ll be back later with some other food news. Gotta go to the dentist.
