A fire that destroyed a Long Beach single-story restaurant but did not cause any injuries Sunday morning is being investigated by authorities, according to the Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD).
An off-duty firefighter saw flames shooting from the roof of Royal Buffet, 530 East 33rd Street, at about 7:00AM, LBFD spokesman Mark Miller said.
The first firefighters to arrive called for more crews, and two subsequent waves of firefighters were called in. Miller said the three-alarm fire was out by about 7:30AM.
No one was inside the restaurant at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation, according to Miller.
City News Service contributed to this report.
