JUST IN: Kettering pizza restaurant says it has closed ‘temporarily’

Kettering pizza restaurant PizzaFire posted a sign on its door this morning, Jan. 9 saying it is “temporarily closed for renovations.”

When this news outlet stopped by the restaurant at 4325 Far Hills Ave. shortly after 11 a.m. today, no renovations were underway inside the restaurant. But a U-Haul truck was parked in front, with a man loading items from inside the store into the moving van. He referred questions to PizzaFire corporate officials.
