Brennans burns down... Houston, TX.
Never been here, but the comments circulating the place makes it sound like it was a true roadfood joint. Friggin Hurricanes..
One of Houston's historic restaurants burned to the ground early Saturday morning. Firefighters were powerless to save Brennan's of Houston as high winds from Hurricane Ike prevented crews from dousing the flames.
The fire was reported at 12:20 a.m., by the time fire trucks arrived, though, the restaurant was fully engulfed. Almost immediately, fire crews went into a defensive posture to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby buildings.
A Houston Fire Department assistant chief told 11 News that two people were inside the restaurant at the time of the fire. Those people were taken to a local hospital.
The extent of their injuries was not known.
Brennan's opened in downtown Houston more than 40 years ago and constantly rated as one of the best eateries in the city.
More details on the fire as they become available.
