Fire Leaves Strip Club Topless

Fire this morning tore through the roof of The Body Shop, a landmark West Hollywood strip club immortalized in a Motley Crue classic.
The fire was reported around 6:45 a.m. at the one-story club on the aptly named Sunset Strip. Television helicopter footage showed flames flaring through the roof.
The blaze was extinguished within an hour, but not before roughly 70 percent of the interior had been torched.
No one was believed to have been in the building at the time, Los Angeles County fire Inspector Frank Garrido said. That said, arson investigators were called to the scene.
Sunset Boulevard was closed off as fire engines arrived and poured streams of water into the building.
The club was most recently in the news when actress Megan Fox mentioned during an interview with GQ how The Body Shop helped her get over being dumped by her boyfriend in 2004.
"I decided…that I was in love with this girl that worked at the Body Shop…I went out of my way to create a relationship with this girl, a stripper named Nikita…I’d get lap dances so I could get to know her."
It was also where Jude Law went in 2006 to mend his broken heart after one of several dust-ups with Sienna Miller.
The Body Shop, the self-proclaimed "longest running strip club in L.A.," has been popular with Los Angelenos since the 1960s and is one of several clubs mentioned in Motley Crue's strip club anthem "Girls, Girls, Girls."
