Fire displaces people & pizza place


DECATUR — A popular pizza place is dealing with fire damage. It happened at Del Carmen’s East, on 22nd Street. Crews responded before 7 am, Thursday.

People living above the restaurant were already out when firefighters arrived. The fire chief says it started on the first floor and spread to the second, but the roof sustained the most damage.

No word when the restaurant may reopen. Damage is estimated at $70,000.
