Local eatery to reopen soon

“I just want to go back to work,” said Clara Parra, owner of Parra’s Mexican Restaurant.

A fire at the eatery closed the doors, temporarily, on Jan. 5 after a passerby saw flames through a window coming from the kitchen’s stove.

“The clean-up is going OK,” she said. “We’re getting ready to paint the dining room and waiting for the insurance to pay so new equipment can be ordered.”

Owner of the building, Michael Raymond, painted a sign letting the community know why the local eatery is closed.

“Everything is in motion,” he said. “The insurance companies are dancing back and forth. The Parras can’t wait to see their friends again.”

Local insurance agent Scott Cann is “trying to assist with the insurance needs” of both the Parra family and Raymond, who added that a professional company was hired to remove the furnishings, steam, clean and paint. The family said they hope to reopen Friday, March 2.

“We’ll be there for the weekend,” said Mama Parra, adding that there were no suspects. She is very glad that the Georgetown Fire Department was able to extinguish the flame before it could do any serious damage to the building.
