We were out for our nearly nightly stroll through Uptown Waterloo when we happened upon the barricades. We thought it was the Busker’s Carnival but it was the aftermath of a fire at ish and chips, a popular uptown eatery.
The fire started just after 3pm on Thursday afternoon. The fire marshal still doesn’t know the cause.
The damage is estimated to be about a half million dollars.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a fire in Uptown Waterloo. It was quite the spectacle.
We found a new shortcut, an alley through a parking lot and between two buildings from Regina Street to King Street.
The midway and the Buskers Carnival looks to be drawing record crowds. It’s quite the spectacle too.
