Workers begin cleaning up debris left by a fire early Saturday morning that heavily damaged Shakey's Pizza Parlor, 801 Broadway. Two persons, including an employee of the business, have been charged with arson and burglary in connection with the blaze.
A special arson investigator said there were "five points of origin of fire" in the basement and dining area of the pizza parlor. The fire heavily damaged the rear areas of the basement and dining area and caused extensive smoke damage to the upstairs portion of the building.
The building was never repaired. It was demolished in 1994 and the site became a parking lot for Kerasotes Theaters, which owned the adjacent Broadway Theater.
Shakey's opened in the building on July 1, 1968.
Tenkhoff Pharmacy occupied the building from 1943 to 1964.
