Fire Damage at Riley's of 1st Ave
The Cedar Rapids Fire Department was called to Riley's Restaurant on 1st Avenue in Cedar Rapids on a Tuesday afternoon. A fire, which started in the area above the kitchen, caused extensive damage to the building. Fire crews were able to extinguish the fire, but not before extensive damage was done to the roof.
SERVPRO of Cedar Rapids was called to the scene shortly after the fire to begin emergency services. Crews were on site into the night getting a tarp on the roof and securing windows and doors. SERVPRO of Cedar Rapids was also hired to assist with cleanup of Moose McDuffy's and Citywide Cleaners. The relationship with the owners of these businesses was started long before the fire happened, and that is why SERVPRO of Cedar Rapids was the first on scene and able to respond quickly to try to get these businesses up and running very quickly.
Within weeks, SERVPRO of Cedar Rapids will be able to make it "Like it never even happened."
