A popular Minneapolis restaurant has been knocked out of commission by a fire.
On Friday, smoke was seen coming out of the roof of Red Rabbit, located at 201 N Washington Ave in the North Loop neighborhood:
Early in the afternoon, the restaurant announced on its Facebook that it would be "closed until further notice"; luckily, there were no injuries, according to the post:
Per WCCO, the Minneapolis Fire Department said "people noticed smoke after the grills had been fired up," and that by the time firefighters arrived, the fire had reached the roof. The extent of the damage is not clear.
This is the second time fire has shut down Red Rabbit. In April 2018, flames broke in the kitchen due to a "minor issue" related to the hood vents. No one was injured in that fire, either.
The restaurant, which has a sister location in St. Paul, is owned by the same group that operates Red Cow, a popular burger joint with four locations in the Twin Cities.
