Never mind.

“Deltona firefighters didn’t know what to think when they were dispatched to the Deltona campus of Daytona State College just before noon Thursday.

The original report —an exploding barber chair — was wrong.

“There was no explosion,” said Deputy Chief Robert Rogers. “There wasn’t even a fire.”

It was an electrical short in the foot bath of a chair in the school’s cosmetology building, he said. It happened in a classroom where pedicures and manicures are taught, he said.

In Daytona? Obviously Juan Pablo Montoya ran into it; there can be no other explanation.

Daytona State College ... and Deltona is part of greater Daytona. Besides, it was necessary to make the joke work. But thanks for playing.

‘BZZZT’ wrong answer - Deltona is an individual community and I ought to know, having lived there before.
