TNA Knockout Tara’s Business, Black Widow Customs, Catches on Fire

A fire broke out this morning at Black Widow Customs, the business owned by TNA Knockout, Tara aka Lisa Marie Varon in Louisville, KY.

WHAS11, a local news station in Louisville reports:

Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) – Firefighters and arson investigators are on the scene of a business fire on Preston Highway.

The business – Black Widow Customs – was the subject of a Consumer Watch investigation on WHAS11 Wednesday.

The fire is out right now but firefighters say the fire is suspicious.

An employee says when he got to the business Thursday morning, the shop had been broken into and vandalized and that there were several small fires on the ground near a car inside the shop.

He says he couldn’t put the fires out and that they spread quickly, destroying the whole inside of the store.

Investigators say they are looking into the fact that Black Widow Customs was featured in a WHAS11 Consumer Watch.

There were no injuries in the fire.

Some of the other businesses suffered smoke damage.

News report below:

The fire is being treated as ‘suspicious’ by officials, with arson experts on the scene. Black Widow Customs was featured on WHAS11 news’ ‘consumer watch’ portion just yesterday with a customer claiming that the business had ripped them off.

Thanks to WPN for the heads up.

    Her business burns down and her employees become part the unemployment statistics all within a week of Christmas. It may be awhile before she enjoys the holidays again.

    First someone steals her wheels off her car at her home, and the idiot tries to get her company to make them fit his car. Then (speculation) her business gets destroyed because someone didn’t like the quality of the work done.

    When she was being interviewed at a ComicCon in Chicago earlier this year, she said that she was house hunting for a possible move. How much do you wanna bet before spring that song, “My Old Kentucky Home” won’t apply to her anymore?
