Famed Kansas City Barbecue Destroyed in Fire

A San Diego landmark was destroyed by fire Thursday afternoon.

Kansas City Barbecue, which was used for filming some of the scenes from the movie "Top Gun," was gutted after a fire began in an open cooking pit and spread throughout the restaurant's inside.

Although no one was hurt, damages were reported at $250,000 to the structure and $150,000 to the contents. That figure does not include the value of decades worth of memorabilia, including photographs and props from the 1986 film.
