Firefighters from the Downey Fire Department knocked down a blaze in a restaurant that tore through several businesses in a strip mall Thursday morning.
The call came through around 5:45 a.m. Nearly an hour later at 6:30 a.m., fire was visible pouring out of one business -- a local restaurant -- and onto the roof.
Firefighters could also be seen on the roof of the building in the 8000 block of Firestone Boulevard, trying to beat back the flames. The fire went up to 2nd alarm levels.
Though the flames on the roof looked less extreme around 6:45 a.m., it took until 7:14 to knock down the blaze entirely, according to the Downey Fire Department.
No injuries were reported, according to the Downey Fire Department, and units were still at the scene to assess the damage around 9:45 a.m.
No information about the cause of the fire has been released.
