Initial reports indicated that a small explosion occurred in the pizzeria's kitchen, causing a minor injury to a ConEd worker (who declined a trip to the hospital). There were also accounts from passersby that the blast knocked out La Mia's front window.
However, according to NBC 4, the explosion took place in a boiler room; that first responders broke the front window trying to access the restaurant.

An employee told 1010 WINS that it was "just a little bit of fire." The cause of the leak has not been publicly identified.
There isn't any signage about a temporary closure, and there isn't an outgoing voice-mail message at the shop. Delivery apps list Friday as a reopening date, though that's far from official.
La Mia opened here in September 2020.
