BRIDGEPORT - Marty's Brick Oven Pizza in Bridgeport went up in flames in a fire last March, but the owner is making the best out of his terrible situation.

Marty McCarthy has hit the road in an old fire truck taking the business to the streets.

Today, he was at Fairfield's Masonic Temple prepping for an evening all-you-can-eat pizza dinner fundraiser. McCarthy says that the oven on his fire truck is bigger than the oven that he had in the restaurant. "We've tried to make the best of a bad situation" he says.

He hopes that his restaurant will reopen by the end of this year.
