Driving by it Saturday afternoon I found the popular Mornings/Nights Cafe situated on Griffith Park Boulevard across from Sunset Boulevard’s Triangle Park fully involved with L.A. City firefighters on-scene as smoke poured from its front doors and roof.
I snapped this shot two mornings after the fire through its barred yet open front doors. Looks like the eatery is literal and figurative toast, but it appears that fast action by Fire Department personnel prevented adjacent businesses and residences from sustaining damage. Attempts to reach its owners by phone this morning for comment or word as to any plans to reopen were met with a the phone company’s “I’m sorry but the number you’ve tried to reach is either disconnected or no longer in service…” recording.
It is unknown at this time if the cause of the fire has been determined, if it is under investigation or what the damage is estimate at.
