Fire closes Wig and Pen in Iowa City for lunch Thursday

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) - The Wig and Pen Pizza Pub in Iowa City will not be open for lunch Thursday due to an early-morning fire.

The Iowa City Fire Department says it was called to the restaurant off Highway 6 just after 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

Smoke was coming from the food preparation area.

The fire caused less than $5,000 in damage, though the cause is unknown.

When KWWL called the restaurant, we were told the damage was minor, so they hoped to reopen in time for dinner Thursday evening.
