Salem Firemen Called To Explosion at Taco Bell...But Find No Damage

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Salem Fire Chief Roger Mann says it's unclear what caused an explosion at the Taco Bell Restaurant on West Main Street in Salem..but whatever it was resulted in no damage or injuries.  

Firemen were called just before 8:30 Saturday morning to a report of an explosion at the restaurant.  An employee said he had just lit the fryer, walked away, and heard a loud boom.   He fell to the floor as a safety precaution, but was not injured.  The restaurant had not yet opened, so there were only two employees inside at the time.  

Mann reports they examined the fryer as well as other parts of the building, but could find no cause for the explosion or any resulting damage.  The fire department recommended the fryer be checked further by the company.   However, the restaurant was able to open just a few minutes late.
