What’s Next for Weidner’s After Fire at the Fair?

While an Ultimate Night of Destruction demolition derby was taking place at the Erie County Fair Grandstand, a night of destruction of another type was taking place behind the grandstand of a far more serious nature.  A grease fire broke out at the Weidner’s BBQ stand that heavily damaged the building estimated to be at least 60 years old.

The area was evacuated out of concern for a gas or propane explosion, but everyone made it out safely.  At this point the building is considered a total loss.

I was able to catch up with Ryan Gerber of Weidner’s after Saturday night’s fire to find out what happened and what the company’s plans are down the line.
