Toulon businessman suffers fire at Princeville location

Toulon businessman Rick Calhoun’s Dad’s Pizza in downtown Princeville caught fire Saturday afternoon.
The fire started shortly before 3 p.m. and according to Calhoun, it is believed to have originated from a compressor on one of the freezers.
“That’s where it was the hottest and that freezer was completely melted,” said Calhoun.
The business was not open at the time and no employees were present. The building was considered a total loss as fire caused the roof to collapse.
Fire departments assisted the Akron-Princeville Department from miles around, including Wyoming and Toulon.
Calhoun is the owner of several Dad’s Pizza locations, including one in Toulon and a carry-out location in Galva.
