He finally stopped and leaned against what was left of the front counter. He looked so laid back. "So, it looks like your electrical wiring has needed some updating for a while as well as the circuit breaker. Basically, the outdated setup couldn't handle everything you were running in here. Did you add anything recently? Because my bet is on those two freezers." He pointed at the two that were on the side where the fire occurred.

"We did just add those for this season. We usually only have those other two." Clarke pointed to the freezers on the other side of her, and Vince nodded.

"Okay, well, normally when there's an overload the breaker should alert you, but it obviously didn't. That means you have some worn out connectors on there that need to be addressed as well. The overload triggered the fire. So, you can either back down on the appliances you're using, or I can update the wiring. Either way, I need to fix the breaker box connectors. I'll also have to clean up the water and make sure there's no mold or mildew going on so I can fix that first. I can also clean up all the smoke and soot and dispose of damaged property."

"And how much is all of that going to cost?" she asked with her hands on her hips. It almost sounded like a scam; like he was making up problems so she would pay for them. But that was probably a response to the last guy who'd tried to cheat her out of her money.
