There was a fire today at the popular Axe restaurant on Abbot Kinney which started around 2:15pm. Calls to Axe (who are closed on Mondays) and to LAFD Station 63 Venice have gone unanswered so far. From email reports, it seems that the fire was likely located behind the restaurant. Check back for updates!
Thanks to Eric Milo for the pictures!
