Devastating Fire At El Topo In Fenton – Photos
A fire broke out this afternoon in Fenton at El Topo on Mill Street. Luckily no one was injured in the blaze.
According to the Tri-County Times, the Fenton Fire Department received a call about a dumpster being on fire at Adelaide Street and Mill Street. When first responders arrived on the scene, there was also a vehicle on fire.
The fire spread to the popular Latin American restaurant, which was also home to Relief & Resource Co. A home south of the restaurants caught on fire as well. This fire comes less than one week after another devasting fire in historic downtown Holly.
As this story is still developing the exact details of the damages are not yet known, but you will see in the pictures below they do appear to be severe. Please avoid this area as fire crews work on the scene. I will keep you updated as additional information is made available.
El Topo has always been a favorite of mine. I love the food as well as the staff there. Relief & Resource Co. is another local favorite. How often do you get to go inside of a speakeasy through a Pringles machine?
Here is to hoping both businesses are able to reopen.
