Sad news for all pizza-lovers (and cheapskates). The offices on the second floor of Brunswick street hot-spot Bimbo Deluxe went up in flames around lunchtime yesterday, also causing damage in the popular pub downstairs.
Fortunately, no one was injured in the fire and it is not being treated as suspicious, but the business has closed temporarily. Apparently, it took about two-dozen firefighters 20mins to get the whole thing under control.
No word yet when Bimbo will re-open (they weren't available for comment this morning) but we wish them a speedy recovery. The best thing we can all do now is #prayforbimbos, and buy sh*t-tonnes of $4 pizzas when they're back open. These guys are a Melbourne institution.
