The fire started around 6:30 a.m. Thursday at Jacala Mexican Restaurant off West Avenue near Fredericksburg Road.
Firefighters noticed smoke coming from the restaurant when they arrived. They were able to put out a small fire inside the restaurant, but smoke was still billowing out of the roof. It was determined that there was a fire inside one of the attics that had spread throughout the roof.
Once the roof became unstable, firefighters were pulled from inside the restaurant and they were forced to battle the blaze from outside.
Nobody was reported inside the restaurant at the time of the fire. No injuries are reported.
No word on what caused the fire.
