Lake Echo pizza parlour damaged in early-morning blaze

Crazy Weasel Pizza in Lake Echo (2012)

Crazy Weasel Pizza was engulfed in flames when firefighters and Mounties arrived on the scene early this morning.

RCMP Sgt. Alan Mundle told News 95.7 crews responded to the call at 12:31 a.m., and the fire was put out fairly quickly.

“The fire has been extinguished,” he said. “There’s damage to the structure, to what extent, I’m not sure.”

Though the aftermath of the blaze has not yet been fully assessed, Mundle said there was extensive damage to the inside of the pizza shop.

“But, the structure is still standing. Apparently there’s damage to the interior with respect to fire and smoke and water damage.”

He said the RCMP and fire crews are just looking into the cause of the fire now.

“The matter is just under investigation at this point, and so it’s just the preliminary stages, so unfortunately, I don’t have any more information at this time.”

Nobody was hurt in the fire, according to Mundle, who said the shop was vacant when the fire broke out.

He said right now, it’s too early to tell whether the fire is being deemed suspicious or not.
