Two-Michelin Star Manresa Suffers From Two-Alarm Fire


Renowned two-Michelin star restaurant, Manresa, was ablaze at 3:58 a.m., resulting in a two-alarm fire in Los Gatos, KCBS reports.

The fire was contained by 6 a.m. by 35 firefighters. While only one firefighter was sent to the hospital due to a "minor chest injury," no restaurant employees were injured. The restaurant has been closed for a "deep clean" since July 3.

The Chronicle reports that the restaurant suffered "heavy damage."

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but KCBS reports that a gas meter could be involved and that a Cupertino hazmat crew assisted in containing the fire while PG&E shut down the gas line.

David Kinch, chef and owner of Manresa, is said to be currently flying to the site from New York.

Update: The restaurant has suffered about $300,000 in damage, according to San Jose Mercury News. Battalion Chief of the Santa Clara County firefighters also says that smoke was a huge player in the damage, so napkins, carpeting, and linens will need to be replaced. Mercury also reports that the restaurant will probably be closed for several months.
