Two Killed In Russian Hill Star of India Fire

Posted By on Thu, Nov 29, 2007 at 12:38 PM


Using axes and chainsaws to chop through the front of the restaurant, firefighters knocked down a fatal, early-morning fire at Star of India restaurant in Russian Hill today. The one-story building was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived and damage was heavy in the kitchen area where the bodies of two men, as yet unidentified, were found in a partially-collapsed loft above the kitchen. Nearby Moroccan restaurant Pasha also suffered some smoke damage from the blaze and will be closed for a few days.

There's no word on what caused the fire, but the San Francisco Arson Task Force is handling the investigation, which may or may not say something about the direction the probe is going to take.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
