Special of the day: Burnt toast

The 911 call — fire at the Rod & Reel Pier — went in at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 30. Employees, anglers and customers of the restaurant, including Manatee County Sheriff’s Deputy Gary Sellitto, who said he suspected the fire to be electrical, evacuated safely. As West Manatee Fire Rescue firefighters worked to find the source, cutting through walls and the roof, it rekindled three times. Price said the pier will need not only a new kitchen, but electrical and structure work. Damages had not yet been estimated. For more photos, visit The Islander on Facebook.
