WINFIELD, MO (KPLR) – First a flood, now a fire.

Pizza Plus, a well-known pizza restaurant located off of Main Street in Winfield, may be a total loss after an early morning fire.

The restaurant, which had been closed for the past two weeks due to extreme flooding in Lincoln County, was set to reopen soon when a fire sparked around 3:20 a.m. Monday morning.

Dozens of firefighters were dispatched to the scene, some suffering heat-related injuries. No one was sent to the hospital. The fire was extinguished around 5 a.m.

The Fire Marshal is investigating what sparked the fire and the damage is severe enough that the restaurant could be a complete loss.
