Dulono's Pizza closes for weekend after kitchen fire
Dulono's Pizza had a scare over the weekend as the Lake Street eatery's kitchen caught fire Friday evening. A variety of roots, bluegrass and old-time music rolls through Dulono's on a regular basis, including regulars like the Middle Spunk Creek Boys, Cousin Dad (booked for this past weekend), and the space hosts semi-annual fundraising shows for the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association (MBOTMA).
Several folks on Twitter reported seeing smoke and fire at the restaurant, including Stuff About Minneapolis' Paul Merrill and friend of Gimme Noise Danielle Morris, who was working across the street at Fuji Ya. She snapped the photo above, and left the comment "ON FIRE!"
"At about 10 p.m., six fire trucks came," Morris tells Gimme Noise. "The whole dining room seemed to be filled with smoke. The firefighters pulled out their hoses and and pulled out their big cherry picker ladder up to the roof. It didn't seem like they actually fired off the hoses or anything. And they packed up and moved out around 11:30 p.m."
As reported by Lyn-Lake Minneapolis (via Stuff About Minneapolis), " There was a small fire at Dulono's Pizza last night. They'll be closed for the rest of the weekend, and will re-open Monday at 6 p.m."
