A minor fire Sunday damaged the porch of a turn-of-the-century home on Venice's Oceanfront Walk.
Apparently, the fire damaged only the porch of the blue, two-story, shingle, wood-frame house, which was reported on fire about 12:20 p.m. at Sunset Avenue.
The house has been used for a number of businesses and events over the
past few years, including a medical marijuana club and MTV set for one its
summer reality shows. Situated next to the vintage-1922, brick Gingerbread
Court complex, the house is often vacant.
It was unclear if the structure was rented when the fire started.
No injuries were reported.
According to a Venice web site, police were able to put out the fire
within about 10 minutes.
