SUMMIT, NJ - The news spread quickly, "Magic Fountain is about to reopen."
Summit residents Owen Healey, Josh Khanin and Stefan De Jongh were the first three in line at around 10:30 a.m. after learning on instragram that Magic Fountain was about to begin serving ice cream again.
The three 13-year-olds all said they would order a Magic Fountain blend milk shake. Daniel Horn, 20, also from Summit, heard from the owner that it was about to reopen, and was second in line behind the boys.
During the early morning hours of April 11, a fire caused heavy damage to the storage and attic areas, with smoke and heat damage evident throughout the building.
The fire produced plumes of black smoke from multiple sides of the building, and flames shot through the roof. The building was unoccupied at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.
Less than five months later, the "magic" is back.
