Motorists driving through Weaverville on Highway 299 last week may have noticed heavy equipment removing the debris of the former Round Table Pizza building. The building ignited sometime after midnight April 6 but the suspected cause has not been determined or released.
Teri Ernandes, director of marketing at the parent company, Circle Pizza, LLC, said they have also not been informed as to the investigation but are planning to rebuild.
“We are working as quickly as possible to get the site cleaned up,” she said. “Once cleanup is done and the engineering plans have been released, we will begin the process of designing and planning the new store.” She called it a top priority of the company that the business reopen to the community and provide local employment.
A cause has also not been released as to the June 16 fire that destroyed the shuttered Marino’s Restaurant, located just two buildings away from the Round Table site.
Anyone with information about either fire is asked to call Trinity County Sheriff’s Office at 623-2611.
