Mun­ster restau­rant dam­aged in blaze

Post Tribune (Sunday) - - News - By Michelle L. Quinn Post-Tri­bune

A long­time Mun­ster pizze­ria will be out of com­mis­sion for an in­de­ter­mi­nate amount of time af­ter a fire burned the front of its build­ing, a fire of­fi­cial said.

Mun­ster fire Chief Dave Pelc said Thurs­day a passerby re­ported smoke com­ing from the roof at Aure­lio’s Pizze­ria, 416 Ridge Road, at 8:24 a.m. Thurs­day. When fire­fight­ers ar­rived, they found a small fire be­hind the sign.

Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that the fire was caused by “an elec­tri­cal is­sue,” Pelc said.

The fire caused dam­age to the out­side of the build­ing, and there was water and smoke dam­age in­side, Pelc said, adding he thinks the build­ing will likely be closed for some time. No one was in the build­ing at the time, he said.

The Lans­ing, High­land and Scher­erville fire de­part­ments as­sisted with the fire, Pelc said.
