The fire damaged a building that housed Dogz Bar and Grill, gutting the restaurant weeks before it was scheduled to reopen after being closed since January of 2017 because of flooding, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported.
Traffic was routed away from the area while an investigation was conducted into the cause of the fire.
