Pepperbelly’s Fire Ruled Accidental, Performers Agree to Help Out


Fairfield fire investigators determined Tuesday that a devastating fire that destroyed Pepperbelly’s last week was accidental.

That’s good news for the owners, knowing the six-alarm inferno wasn’t intentionally set.

Pepperbelly’s owners hope to rebuild. Headliners have contacted the owner, vowing to perform or free at an alternate location to help raise funds.

Fairfield Fire Battalion Chief Bob Stoffel said the origin of the fire was on the second floor. Insurance investigators are still looking for the exact cause.
