A fire broke out at Tim Love’s flagship restaurant, The Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, early this morning in Fort Worth, TX.
The fire broke out this morning at 6:30 AM local time, and firefighters reported that heavy smoke and fire was emitting from the back of the restaurant. While the fire was contained in the back, the rest of the restaurant suffered heavy smoke damage. Luckily, no injuries were reported, according to the Star-Telegram,but firefighters have not pinpointed the cause of the blaze.
As of now, the restaurant will be closed indefinitely, but Love plans to reopen as soon as possible:
Thanks for the outpouring of support. @lonesomedovefw caught fire early this morning. Everyone is safe. We will reopen stronger!
