BERKELEY -- A popular local restaurant sustained significant damage from an early-morning fire Sunday.
Firefighters responded to Breads of India & Gourmet Curries restaurant in the 2400 block of Sacramento Street at 1:10 a.m. Sunday to find the inside of the building ablaze.
It took about 27 minutes for crews to put out the one-alarm fire, said Battalion Chief Avery Webb.
There were no injuries.
Berkeley Fire contacted the county Department of Public Health, which is standard procedure anytime there are restaurant fires.
Fire investigators continue to look for the cause of the fire, which originated in the building. The fire caused approximately $100,000 worth of damage, Webb said.
Some apartments in a two-story building two doors down from the restaurant also experienced some smoke damage from the combustion of the fire, he said.
Rao Rohit Singh, owner of Breads of India, said he could not say much as far as the cause, but is determined to reopen as soon as "things fall into place."
"This restaurant is my first baby and I am heartbroken to see what happened to it," he said in an email.
Breads of India's two other East Bay locations in Walnut Creek and Oakland remain open, Singh said.
