Du-Par’s Restaurant & Bakery in Studio City is temporarily closed after a fire broke out just before 11 p.m. Tuesday night. The damage was minimal, mainly affecting an outside storage area, though the kitchen and an upstairs office did catch some flames. Luckily, no injuries were reported; one employee was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation, but is in good condition.

The famous 24-hour retro diner will remain closed until an inspection can be conducted by the health department. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. [CBS, via Grub Street LA]
