An overnight fire Friday destroyed a popular Pequannock pizzeria just short of its 50th anniversary.
Flames tore through Cosmo Bella on Newark Pompton Turnpike, blowing through the roof and destroying the building, which also housed apartments upstairs. No injuries were reported.
It took a few hours to douse the blaze, which broke out shortly before 1:30 a.m. Mutual aid responders included firefighters from Lincoln Park, Riverdale and Wayne.
Authorities were trying to determine the cause, although responders said initial indications are that it likely was accidental.
