A weekend fire caused heavy damage at an amusement park in central Iowa. The flames swept through a series of adjoining shops on Saturday at Adventureland in Altoona, just northeast of Des Moines. The park was closed for the season and no injuries were reported. A toy store, arcade, restaurant and bingo parlor were all lost in the fire.
It’s thought a ceiling collapsed in the toy store and sparked an electrical fire. No dollar figure has been released on the damage, but Adventureland officials say they’re still planning to open in late April, as scheduled.
