Two-alarm fire damages Vancouver Pizza

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A two-alarm fire broke out Saturday morning at Vancouver Pizza in downtown Vancouver, causing substantial heat and smoke damage, firefighters said.

The fire was reported at about 2:15 a.m. Investigators say bleach fumes from dried towels helped spark a fire at The Vancouver Pizza Company at about 2 a.m. Saturday morning. A passer-by noticed the flames and called the fire department.

Firefighters say the fire spread to C. Roberts Hair Design nearby. Both are located on Main Street in Downtown Vancouver.

Crews called a second alarm after seeing lots of smoke pouring from the business, located at 22nd Avenue and Main Street.

The extra manpower helped firefighters put out the fire in a few minutes.

Investigators say the pizza restaurant suffered the most damage, an estimated $100,000. The salon faces about $3,000 in damages.

Bummer! You'll have to make your own pizza now! I'm sure it won't compare to this place, if it's the place you sent me their menu!

Okay - put that on the list of places to eat when G'ma and I come out. And don't forget to make a list as you are traveling south next weekend.
