Witness said that they saw one of the layouts inside on fire, someone forgot to disconnect the power pack and it overheated?
 

Yes here is the link to the video of it burning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zisp8YKk4y8

I thought somewhere it said they were bankrupt? Probably burnt down on purpose so they didnt have to take care of it.

I just heard about the closing a couple of days ago. When I worked in West L.A., I went to the old location quite frequently before they moved across the street. After a while, the trip from West L.A. to Culver City got too long (45 minutes), so I started going to The Roundhouse in North Hollywood.

Nowadays, with all the traveling I do, it's easier to order online but I still like going to a brick and mortar location for those personal interactions.
