After all was said and done, yesterday morning's fire in Hollywood severely damaged Basque nightclub and the Blood Shot tattoo parlor. Two other adjacent occupancies of the building sustained moderate damage -- Sandee's shoe repair and the San Miguel Spa and Salon. Of the 180 firefighters who reported to the 5:31 a.m. fire, there were no injuries.

For those who think an arsonist is involved in the recent spate of fires, Battalion Chief John Miller, head of LAFD's arson investigations unit, told the LA Times that he thinks there are no apparent connections. "I don't think there are a pattern of fires that have some sort of tie-in." On Sunday, a few blocks away, Off Vine Restaurant burned down during business hours.
