LEESBURG, Va. (AP) - In a story June 7 about a jewelry store fire, The Associated Press reported erroneously who owns Caulkins Jewelers. The store is owned by both Stanley and Roger Caulkins, not only Stanley Caulkins.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Longtime Leesburg jewelry store damaged by fire
