BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) - Cleanup is underway after a fire damaged part of a Brazil restaurant.

It happened just before 2:00 Tuesday morning at the Mario Brothers Restaurant.

The restaurant is located on National Avenue in Brazil.

News 10 spoke with the Brazi Fire Chief.

He told us when his crews arrived on the scene, they found heavy fire in the rear of the building, specifically in the cooler and the room it was in.

The fire made its way into the kitchen, forcing crews to knock down part of the ceiling to fight the blaze.

The chief told us they think the fire started in the compressor unit of the cooler.

We've reached out to restaurant owners to find out when they plan to reopen.

So far, we haven't heard back.
