Early this morning, a large fire erupted at chef David Kinch's two Michelin-starred Manresa in Los Gatos, California. According to CBS, the fire was reported at around 4 a.m. when flames could be seen "erupting" from the restaurant. A group of about 35 firefighters arrived on scene to put out the blaze which "somehow began outside" of the restaurant and then "burned through to the attic and interior." There was severe damage to the kitchen and service areas of the restaurant.

According to ABC news, though the structure itself is intact, the entire restaurant was damaged by smoke. Linens, napkins, and carpeting will have to be replaced, in addition to the roof and kitchen areas.

Luckily, employees were not present at the restaurant; each year the restaurant closes for cleaning over the Fourth of July weekend. Local authorities have opened an investigation into what started the fire. Eater has reached out to the team behind Manresa for comment. Go, watch the local news story.
