A Friday night fire at the Tasty Pizza 5423 Leavenworth location was reported and extinguished in less than 30 minutes. Thanks to neighbors who called in the fire, and the fast action of firefighters, no injuries were reported. First responders stayed on-site to assist Tasty owners in their efforts to evacuate the remaining ingredients, which are now being used at the 60th street location. A cause is still being investigated, and efforts are being made to salvage the remaining equipment.

Follow along on Facebook for developments and updates, and swing by Tasty’s 1418 S 60th location to support Tasty’s recovery.
