The iconic building at Bde Maka Ska will have to be demolished after a fire early Thursday morning.
The building first opened in 1930 and last year became Lola on the Lake.
The fire at Lola on the Lake may have been started by lightning but we're still waiting for an official cause.
No one was injured.
The Bde Maka Ska boat launch will reopen in that area Sunday morning.
“We are devastated by the loss of such an iconic feature along the lake," said Minneapolis Park & Rec Superintendent Al Bangoura in a news release.
Bangoura said crews have set up fencing and barriers to prevent building char from the fire from entering the lake.
The new fishing docks south of the building are still accessible to pedestrians.
"In the meantime, the MPRB is working closely with Lola’s on the Lake owner Louis King to continue providing food service by having Lola’s Food Trucks at the park by Memorial Day Weekend; a short-term solution until a new building can be constructed. Park staff are also bringing portable toilets to the busy area," according to the news release.
“We mourn the loss of the facility, but we are going to take care of our personnel and figure out how we can get back to business,” said Louis King in the news release. “Lola’s and the MPRB will continue to be partners and make sure visitors enjoy fast friendly service and great food that people visiting Bde Maka Ska have come to expect.”
