Local Dairy Queen hit by morning fire
The Maricopa Fire Department was dispatched to the Shell gas station at John Wayne Parkway and Garvey Avenue, this morning, after a fire was reported inside the building.
Upon arrival, fire crews found a small kitchen fire inside the Dairy Queen located in the same building. The fire was quickly extinguished and firefighters then worked to clean up the kitchen and remove smoke from the structure.
Everyone had been evacuated from the building prior to fire units' arrival and there were no reported injuries.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
