JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It only took a few minutes for Semone Blair-Walker to lose it all. Surveillance video captured a man pouring gas inside the Meobachi Salon and Spa.
And with one match, seven years of hard work went up in smoke. "Meobachi was more than just a business, it was an extension of me," said Blair-Walker.
The entire salon was gutted, and the burned shell left behind was torn down. "I put my time and my pride. And to see it all go away was devastating," she said.
But after two long years, Blair-Walker is back in business. She rebuilt most of the salon by hand. "Room by room, fixture by fixture, nail by nail, I worked endlessly to get here," she said.
Investigators do have a person of interest. But even with the surveillance video, they were never able to make an arrest.
"It happened. I don't necessarily have all the reasons behind it. And I really don't care. My focus is the now, and I choose to live in the now," said Blair-Walker.
She says though her dream burned down, she is proof dreams don't die if you work hard to keep them alive.
