Overheated equipment sparks blaze at Eudora Dairy Queen

March 3, 2011


Overheated equipment inside the Dairy Queen in Eudora caused a fire early Thursday morning, and the business sustained interior damage, Eudora Police Chief Grady Walker said.

Walker said accidental blaze started when a cone-dipping machine apparently overheated. No one was inside the building, 1502 Church St., when fire crews and officers arrived about 4:30 a.m., he said.

“There’s lots of interior damage, so they’ll be closed for a while to redo that,” Walker said.

Uh oh....some employee is gonna have some explaining to do. As a former employee I know for sure that the warmer was the first thing I unplugged.

I bet Steve (the owner) is mad, the "cone dipping machines" aka edible wax warmer is supposed to be unplugged every night. Guess this time the closers forgot!

Was Mangino in town and decided to go for some ice cream?

Maybe the firefighters are lactose-intolerant?
