PHOTOS: Aftermath of South Lyndale Pizzeria Fire
South Lyndale Ave greeted Friday morning with a depressing tableau.
Thursday evening's fire had savaged the structure. The three billboards on top of the single-story building leaned inwards, while pipes and bits of collapsed ceiling hung n a tangled mess from the remaining walls, visible through the exploded windows. The rear part of the building, including the Beek's kitchen space, had collapsed in a pile of rubble. An oversized boxing glove lay on a window sill.
When reached by phone, staff at Beek's St. Louis Park location said the businesses owners were not yet ready to speak to the public.
