GRAND FORKS — The pepperonis weren’t much, but they were all Latesa Adamsen and her 6-year-old son, Dylan Ryba, had to eat.

The small pieces of meat had been pried off a few frozen pizzas after being warmed by a car’s heat vent.

“(Dylan) said, ‘Why don’t we stick matches in the pizza and heat it that way?’ “ Adamsen said Tuesday. She can laugh about it now, but last Friday’s events didn’t seem so funny at the time.
