    Word on the street says that LJS had caught Nemo the handicapped clownfish and shipped him to this location. Investigators are hesitant to release the information about a rescue attempt by Nemo's father and live in girl friend, Dory. Apparently the fire was set as a diversion before the fish escaped down the toilet in the women's restroom. Pixar Studios could not be reached for comment.

    Looks like the owners of this restaurant are trying to collect a little insurance. Three in two years...looks suspicious to me.
