UPDATE (2:55 P.M. June 8, 2023): A spokesperson for Tudor’s Biscuit World and Gino’s Pizza and Spaghetti says the Danville location will be temporarily closed due to a fire that broke out overnight.
According to the spokesperson, the owners are working to get the building repaired and back open to the public. They say they hope to have both Tudor’s and Gino’s open “within a week” but the repairs could take up to two weeks.
“It is our goal to reopen both restaurants within a week. However, work crews at the site are reasonably confident the store won’t remain closed longer than 14 days,” said Elizabeth Epling, marketing manager of Tudor’s/Gino’s. “We ask or loyal customers for their utmost patience as our maintenance crews work to expeditiously restore operations at our Danville location.”
The company tells WOWK 13 News no injuries were reported in the fire.
Crews from Danville, Madison, Spruce River and Morrisvale responded, and it took around 1,500 gallons of water to extinguish the flames. An incident report said the fire broke out behind the fryers, and crews got to the fire by removing the exterior brick façade from the building.
“We are grateful for the quick response and great teamwork from Danville, Madison, Spruce River and Morrisvale volunteer Fire Departments,” Epling said. “Our Gino’s and Tudor’s family want to give a strong shoutout to the volunteer fire departments who worked through the early morning hours to successfully contain the fire.”
