Small Fire Burns Porch of Venice Boardwalk Structure

A minor fire damages the portch of a turn-of-the-century structure on Venice Beach's boardwalk.

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.
