Firefighters immediately entered the building to determine the source of the smoke. They found an active fire in a roof dormer above the restaurant’s front door and “quickly extinguished” it, a department spokesman said.

Nobody was inside the restaurant at the time of the fire and no firefighters were injured. The roof dormer was the only part of the restaurant damaged. A phone number for the restaurant could not be found.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
