The Waterloo Fire Department had a busy Tuesday morning, responding to two separate calls.
The first was a report of a fryer on fire shortly after 9:30 a.m. at Power Haus Cheer and Dance, 8718 Hanover Industrial Drive. A deputy on scene advised that the fryer had been turned off and that firefighters could proceed with caution. The scene was considered secure a short time later.
The next call came out about 9:45 a.m. for a strong odor of gas inside the State Bank of Waterloo administrative building across from McDonald’s off Route 3. All employees had evacuated the building as a precaution while fire officials examined the situation. City utility crews were also dispatched to the scene.
