Cedar Rapids police Sunday were letting people know via social media that a billboard advertising Casey’s Pizza, viewable on northbound Center Point Road NE south of Blairs Ferry Road, was not actually on fire.
In a Facebook post Sunday morning, the Cedar Rapids Police Department stated:
“Our Joint Communications Center has received several calls reporting a billboard on fire in northeast Cedar Rapids. The billboard company installed a smoke machine to the billboard on Center Point Road about 100 yards south of Blairs Ferry Road NE. The billboard and smoke machine are supposed to depict a steaming hot pizza. There is no fire and do not call 911 to order a pizza!”
