The Krispy Kreme doughnut shop in Manassas is closed today after an oven fire early Sunday morning.
City of Manassas Fire and Rescue units were dispatched to the Krispy Kreme store, located in the 9800 block of Liberia Avenue, before daybreak on Sunday, June 9, and found that the fire had already been extinguished by a fire protection system, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.
Units assisted with ventilating the building. No injuries were reported, the post said.
The fire department noted that hood systems and other commercial kitchen protective systems required by code are necessary for exactly this type of incident.
“The system did just as it was designed to do and prevented further damage and fire spread to the remainder of the building,” the post said.
Calls to the Krispy Kreme shop were not answered this morning. It’s not clear when the shop will reopen for business
