Why couldn't the psychics use their psychic powers to predict the fire and prevent it??? Or was this an inside job to collect insurance money for a failing business?

Do you think the good folks at Krystal Readings predicted this?

I was beaten to the first post by Psych. I guess these responses were, let's say, predictable.

Sounds like the crazy psychics trying to collect insurance money..Let me guess, she lit one too many candles during a fake reading.

This is one of the gypsy fortune teller parlors. I wonder what the boss of the territory might have to say about it? Or maybe he's also a talented prognosticator & saw it coming.

For their own safety, the Fire Department might have summoned some disembodied spirits knock it down.

My wife's friends daughter goes next store to the school for independent earners.
The school has had trouble for years with this fortune teller. They complain all the time about the high levels of energy that the students produce. She complains high levels of energy prevent her from seeing her clients inner energy????????

Huh, you'd think that the psychic would know ahead of time how much the students' "energy" might interfere w/the psychic's business. Sounds like that psychic should've had a consultation w/another psychic to see if it was a good spot for the business.

Oh, come on Bay City News! Have a little fun with your day job. This is the lamest story I've ever read when the news recipe is fire/lawsuit/anything + psychic.

Couldn't even have used the old lede: "They should have seen it coming."
