Take the eyes….

..But not the restaurants! WCCO is reporting:

A large fire broke out at a popular retail block in south Minneapolis on Thursday afternoon.

According to crews, the fire began in the ceiling of one of the shops on 50th Street South and Bryant Avenue.

Among the shops on the block are Patina, Blackbird Cafe, Heidi’s Minneapolis and The Malt Shop.

It was not immediately clear which building or buildings were being affected by the fire.

Firefighters at the scene were battling the flames, but it appeared the would be forced to let the building in question burn.

    Looks like a total loss, WCCO streamed a copter cam live and I saw the roof collapse.
