Fire Breaks Out at Blake’s on the Park

Fire officials are investigating after a fire broke out at Blake’s on the Park on Saturday morning.

Atlanta Fire Rescue spokesperson Anaré Holmes told 11 Alive that fire fighters got multiple calls between 6am and 6:30am on May 25 about heavy smoke emanating from inside of Blake’s, one of the establishments near the rainbow crosswalk on 10th Street and Piedmont Ave. When fire fighters arrived, heavy smoke and flames were seen coming from the back of the building.

According to fire officials, no one was inside the building during the fire and only “moderate damage” was caused, so Blake’s is expected to be “back and operating as soon as possible.”

“As you all may be aware, there was a fire in the early morning today,” Blake’s posted on Instagram. “Minor damages occurred but no one was in the building and all of the staff is safe. Many thanks to all of the love and support we’ve received. The community has shown it’s [sic] beautiful colors and we’re forever grateful. We will be closed until further notice and any updates will be shared with all of you as we receive them. We’ll be back in no time and better than ever!”
