PHOENIX -- Investigators are trying to determine what sparked a fire inside the Eye Opener restaurant on West Hatcher Road in the Sunnyslope neighborhood of North Phoenix.

The restaurant was not open at the time, but an employee who lives nearby saw smoke pouring from the back of the business and called 911 just before 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

Firefighters responded and quickly knocked down the flames. A spokesman on the scene said crews contained the flames to the kitchen, which is where the fire started.

The extent of damage is unknown. The cause has not yet been determined.

No one was hurt in the fire.
