SAN DIEGO: Fire Damages Gay Bookshop

Rex Wockner reports that last night a fire severely damaged Obelisk, San Diego’s LGBT bookstore.

The building housing San Diego’s gay bookstore, Obelisk, was declared off-limits by the city tonight after a fire heavily damaged the structure’s second and third stories this afternoon. The store won’t be allowed to re-open until the building is repaired. From about 30 feet away, it appeared that the contents of the store likely had sustained heavy water damage, as well.
