Small Fire Could Change Lunch Plans For Some

Newark – Crews from Aetna Hose Hook and Ladder, along with Christiana Fire Company responded to the Royal Farms at 865 S Old Baltimore Pike for a small kitchen fire this morning.

Reports from the scene indicate that the staff was able to quickly put the fire out on their own. The store remains open however the deli will be closed until it can be inspected, according to a representative who answered the phone. These matters tend to be resolved quickly so give them a call to check on the status of the deli.

If you want to grab some of that delicious Royal Farms chicken the two nearest Royal Farms locations are on Route 40. 2808 Pulaski Hwy in Newark and Pulaski Hwy & Wellington Dr in Bear.
