Wales pizzeria shaken by oven explosion

Milwaukee (CBS 58) – Pizza Guy of Wales will close for at least the weekend after an explosion in the early afternoon of Friday, March 4.

One of the pizza ovens exploded due to a buildup of natural gas, injuring a longtime employee. A neighboring business reported that debris from the explosion had broken through the walls and into their business. Lake Country Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene, turned off the gas valves, evacuated the building and transported one person to hospital.

According to Pizza Guy’s Facebook page, “Only one person was injured, but he is our much-loved long-time manager who is like family to us. He is being well cared for, but we ask that you send him medical love and prayers for a speedy and full recovery!” More information about Pizza Guy here.
