Update 8:30am: By the light of day, “not native” and “veniceme” have added info in the forums that the fire appears to have been in the structure adjacent to Joe’s. As of now, it appears that there was no damage to the restaurant.
From Ali at 4 am:
Wanted to inform you that we are currently watching Joe’s Restaurant up in flames as we sit in our house near Electric and Broadway. Happened around 3:45 am. Firemen arrived very quickly.
More info when we get it.
