As most of the community are aware Lopez Taco House has suffered an electrical fire early in the morning of Dec 6th, 2021.
Lopez Taco House has been an institution in Albion since 1975 when founded by Maria and Manuel Lopez. Now run by son Dan along with cousins the restaurant is very proud of their 46 years of service to the greater Albion Area.
When interviewed today Dan stated that they have no insurance and that this fire was devastating to him and his family. He said “I have been crying today because I can’t wrap my head around this. We are already as you see, working on cleanup and working on repairs to the building”.
They acknowledged the outpouring of support today has been wonderful. Dan said it is great but he and the family need help, everything from repairs to money to fund operations. As his cousin Kayla Ortiz said, “We humbly ask for help”.
Most of the fire was located in the front of the restaurant but there is heavy smoke damage. It appears the fire happened due to an extension cord connected to decorations in the front window he said.
The family expressed their thanks and asks if anyone wishes to donate to this, the official donation page authorized by Dan and the family.
