    Pizza Italia Fire

    Didn't see any posts on this yet...for those who ride Mac, this is (or was) a popular post ride beer and grub stop. Hope they rebuild. According to the news, the Patio Bar next door avoided major damage...not sure how.

    SAN ANTONIO -- Fire investigators are looking for a cause in a fire that heavily damaged a North Side pizza parlor Thursday morning.

    Flames filled the Pizza Italia around 5:00 a.m. The restaurant is located in a strip center off of Thousand Oaks near Jones Maltsberger.

    Noooooooo!!!



    From MYSA.com

    A North Side pizzeria was largely destroyed in an early-morning blaze that might have damaged nearby buildings.

    Around 5 a.m., one of the owners of Jack’s Patio Bar in the 2900 block of Thousand Oaks was locking the bar when he saw flames consuming the front door of Pizza Italia, next to the bar, he said.

    “I moved my car, then called 911, and five minutes later, the roof was on fire,” said Rene Martinez. “I was speechless, shocked.”

    More than two dozen units and 80 San Antonio firefighters fought the blaze, which already had broken through the roof by the time trucks arrived, said Assistant Chief David Coatney.

    He estimated the fire caused $750,000 in damage and the inside of the restaurant was a total loss, but the extent of the fire’s havoc won’t be seen until sunrise, Coatney said. The business owner hadn’t been contacted yet, he said.

    “There are fire stops in the building,” Coatney said, explaining that those caused the fire not to spread rapidly through the strip center. “But there was possible extension to other buildings.”

    Martinez was relieved his business wasn’t damaged by the fire

    Pete G & I go there for their turkey sub. I'm pretty sure the owner(Terry?) has good insurance. Keep your fingers crossed...
