This morning commuters on South I-5 were treated to billowing black smoke and bumper to bumper traffic as Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza on Avenida Encinas cooked up a little more than delicious pizza.

A Carlsbad police officer working traffic duty in front of the restaurant heard an explosion about 8 a.m. and called in the emergency. Forty-eight firefighters from Carlsbad, Encinitas and Vista were called to the scene. . . .the fire started in the back of the restaurant where the kitchen, electrical panels and gas lines are located, Carlsbad Fire Marshal James Weigand said.

The fire caused $1 million in damages. Luckily, no one was injured.
