The scene of the Tune Inn kitchen fire that struck early in the morning on June 22.

Although it now appears the fire was largely confined to the kitchen, the venerated bar and restaurant -- which was last year featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives will likely be closed for a couple weeks to repair the estimated $75,000 in damage.

The news swept through D.C. through various social media outlets, yielding an outpouring of support for the popular and historic watering hole.
