Jay Laundromat will remain temporarily closed for repairs after a ceiling fire Wednesday afternoon. Situated in a strip on Mill Creek Road, the laundromat is located near the Mill Creek and Orangewood Apartments.
Multiple Bristol Township fire companies responded to the Violetwood Shopping Center around 1:15 p.m. yesterday. Employees at the next-door Luigi’s Pizzarama called dispatch when they saw smoke coming down through their ceiling.
“I determined the fire was caused by paper-backed insulation up against an exhaust pipe,” Dippolito said in a press release.
A sign posted on the storefront’s windows says Jay Laundromat is “closed until further notice.”
There were no reported injuries. The Edgely, Levittown #2, Fairless Hills, William Penn, Newportville, Croydon, and Third District Fire Companies responded to the scene. The Bristol Township Fire Department and Levittown-Fairless Hills Rescue Squad also responded.
