Fire at Ned's Southside Kitchen in St. Augustine
Ned's isn't on Roadfood, but I have recommended it to folks visiting St. Augustine.
The restaurant suffered a fire early this morning, which apparently started in the kitchen exhaust system. Firefighters knocked the blaze down in 15 minutes, though one received minor injuries. No one was in the restaurant at the time.
Thanks to the quick action of the St. John's County Fire Dept., it appears the building was saved. Owner Nathan Pollock announced on the restaurant's web site that Ned's will be closed until further notice, and that updates on the progress of repairs will be posted there periodically.
