When my train pulled into the Jack London Sqaure stop last night, I finally had a chance to check a weeks worth of Metro PCS voicemails. Several people had called me to break the bad news. Benders Bar and Grill on 19th and S Van Ness had a late night fire, and appears to be pretty gutted.
My friend Phil (from Yes, Absolutely.) lives right down the street and heard the fire trucks at around 4 in the morning. The next day he snapped these photos.
I called Ta Wei last night to see how he is doing, but haven’t heard back yet. As far as I’ve heard, nobody was hurt in the fire.
