Customers of decadent doughnut maker Gourdough’s Public House were evacuated on South Lamar last night, Wednesday, March 16, because of a neighboring fire, as reported by the Statesman. The commercial building behind the restaurant, lighting store and warehouse Two Hills Studio, caught aflame, but no one was injured, according to the Austin Fire Department. The doughnut shop is open today for regular hours, as noted on Facebook.

The fire was reported at 8:35 p.m. South Lamar was closed until 11 p.m., while firefighters worked on containing the flames. The building's roof collapsed.

This is Gourdough's first brick and mortar building, along with a second location down on West 5th Street. There is also the original trailer on South 1st Street, and an impending one on Burnet.
