Alan Hess, whom you may know, made a FB posting about a fire in the Rancho Mirage Chart House restaurant that Kendrick Bangs Kellogg designed in 1978.  Here is the posting from Alan Hess.

Alan Hess:
"This is not good news, folks. This was designed by San Diego architect Ken Kellogg as one of his tremendous custom designs for the Chart House restaurants. Kellogg is one of the very best Organic architects practicing today-- his Yucca Valley house was the cover of my book Organic Architecture: the other modernism. Let's hope it can be restored."

Thanks for passing the news along to us, Nelson. Let's hope something positive can be salvaged from this terrible loss.
