Fire at Lares Restaurant

Andrew | May 18, 2005 04:51 PM

I recalled seeing a lot of dark smoke yesterday before 3:00 p.m. in Santa Monica and unfortunately the smoke was from a fire at Lares Restaurant.

There were six injuries (one firefighter) and approximately $200,000.00 in damage. The fire started in the second floor kitchen and spread to the roof.

Lares family members were quoted as saying: "We will re-open quickly and the restaurant is going to look like new."

I included a link to the May 18th Santa Monica Daily Press, which has an article about the fire.
