Some more information has leaked out about the devastating fire that consumed Sel Gras. The brand new Mediterranean restaurant had been open less than a week when it burned to the ground early yesterday morning. Arson is suspected but police have not confirmed anything so far.

From The Gazette: "It's now a total loss," said [owner Mathieu] Arteau, adding that he is trying to make sense of something senseless while in "a total state of shock."

Condolences continue to pour in on the Facebook pages of owners David Martin and Farsim Fahandezh. The former released a statement late last night: "Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and words of comfort. We will not disappoint."
