RANSON, W.Va. – An ice cream shop went up in flames early Monday morning in Jefferson County. The Ranson Dairy Queen is a complete loss.
Firefighters from the Independent VFD and other fire companies responded to the blaze around 4 a.m. Within 10 minutes the roof of the building collapsed making it impossible to save the structure on South Mildred Street.
No one was injured battling the flames.
Restaurant owner Vicki Peterson said they plan to rebuild but it could be six months or more before they’re able to reopen.
Investigators are still trying to determined what sparked the blaze.
