Fire damages Madison pizzeria


MADISON (WKOW) -- Firefighters say a fire left about $25,000 in damage to a pizzeria on the city's east side.

Crews were called to Buck's Pizza on Cottage Grove Road around 5:30 Thursday evening.

Employees reported smoke coming from the ventilation duct near the ceiling. They turned off the pizza ovens, evacuated the building and called 911.

Firefighters found flames around the ductwork and eventually had it under control within 10 minutes.

No one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Firefighters say it appears to be unintentional.

Buck's Pizza will remain closed until repairs are made and the fire area is cleaned.
