One of Melbourne's favourite watering holes is closing its doors for a few months for repairs, a day after faulty office equipment sparked a blaze in an upstairs office.

The MFB was called to Fitzroy's iconic Bimbo's Pizza at around 1:15am, and though they were able to contain it the venue says the extent of the damage is still being assessed.

 

"It's a sad day for all lovers of cheap pizzas, cold beer and good times," Bimbo's said in a statement. 

"Bimbos will BRB in the next few months." 

CHECK OUT THE FULL STATEMENT: 

As you've probably seen or heard (thanks for all the attention guys!) we've had a fire. It's a sad day for all lovers of cheap pizzas, cold beer and good times. 

The boring details; the fire was caused by faulty office equipment and is in no way suspicious. Thankfully, no staff or patrons were on site when the fire broke out. The extent of damage is still being assessed.

On the bright side, Bimbos will BRB with a less charred fit in the next few months. We'll be coming back with a bang, so keep your eyes on the society pages for our big reveal.
