The fire trucks were put to use in Lavaca today, Thursday, August 15. There was a fire in the ceiling at the iScream Ice Cream Shop, located at 101 AR-96.
According to the owner of the business, Barbara Morton Hare, the fire began in the lighting and spread to the roof. The shop wasn’t open yet but the fire was seen by a local lady who dialed 911. The building is owned by Lavaca native, Bronson Andrews
“We have spent something around $6,000 to remodel this building and get it ready for business,” said Mrs. Hare. “This will be fixed and we will be back in business as soon as possible.”
iScream Ice Cream Shop is located in the same mini-mall that includes the Lavaca Grill and Rub ‘em Tender. The ice cream shop serves many flavors of ice cream and soft serve. They sell cakes, pies, and pastries as well. The Hare’s have remodeled the building to look like an old soda shop with black-and-white checkered floors, white walls with vintage ice cream photos. The chairs are reminiscent of the old-style along with booths.
Lavaca will be watching to see how long it will be until they reopen their doors! The line starts right here!
