Crews arrived to the scene at 12:01 p.m. and found a small fire burning on the restaurant's roof after receiving a 911 call from the restaurant at 11:56 a.m. Thursday.

One firefighter received a minor injury but was not transported to a hospital after crews worked for 45 minutes to extinguish the fire. All employees and patrons were evacuated and no civilians were injured.

The fire came two years after a blaze destroyed the restaurant's previous location at 48 W. Chicago Ave.

Two engines, one truck company, a medic unit and two chief officers were dispatched to the scene yesterday afternoon, according to a press release. 

A building inspector from the Naperville Department of Transportation, Engineering and Development closed the restaurant until the health department responded and repairs were made to the roof. 

Fire investigators from the Naperville Fire Department remained on the scene investigating the cause of the fire, according to the press release.

The estimated damage to the building is $100,000.
