Wood-fired pizza fire at Ballina
WOOD used to fuel a pizza oven caused a small fire at a Ballina pizza shop this morning.
A Newcastle Fire Communications spokesman said NSW Fire and Rescue Ballina brigade were called to Viva Pizza on River St at 6:55am after reports of a fire.
When fire fighters arrived they found wood used to fuel the pizza oven had fallen between the oven and a wall and caught alight, the spokesman said.
Fire fighters extinguished a small fire, removed the wood and then checked for any hotspots at Viva Pizza.
