Duck Creek Fire

Duck Creek Fire

Three buildings burned to the ground last week in Utah’s Duck Creek Village on Cedar Mountain.

Hot Mama’s Pizza and Brew, a storage building belonging to it, and a nearby cabin were fully engulfed in flames when responding firefighters arrived.

Adding to the inferno was the explosion of several carbon dioxide containers for the soda fountain.

A faulty electrical source is suspected as the cause of the blaze. The cabin was in the middle of renovation to a laundry facility.

Besides the Cedar Mountain Fire Department, units from Kanab, Alton, and Orderville responded. Owner Sam Atkinson plans to rebuild but said insurance won’t cover the entire cost. He said he opened the business eight years ago with 82 cents in his pocket.
