The fire was quickly contained. “Our pizza oven fan shot craps, which led to some smokiness,” Hopskeller posted on Facebook. “Thanks to our neighbors at Outsider for bringing this to our attention, to the Waterloo Fire Department for their speedy response and to the Waterloo Police Department for getting here so quickly.” The exhaust fan was replaced and Hopskeller resumed food operations this past Friday. Hopskeller, located at 116 E. Third Street, was heavily damaged by a chimney fire in October 2016, resulting in massive repairs before reopening in late 2017.
