Barrie Fire and Emergency Services are still looking into the cause of the early morning fire that broke out at Tandoori Kingdom but say the damage is extensive.

Deputy Fire Chief Kerry Clark said fire crews were called to the scene of the East End restaurant around 5:15 a.m. Thursday after a neighbor noticed smoke.

When crews arrived, Clark said the fire had started burning through the roof.

“Crews mounted an aggressive attack and extinguished the fire and conducted a thorough search of the building,” Clark said.

“The fire investigators have been on the scene since just before 9:00 and are now investigating the origin and cause of the fire. At this time, it doesn’t look suspicious. “

Clark said no one was inside the restaurant when firefighters responded, and no injuries were reported.

The estimated cost of the damage is unknown at this time, but Clark said that the fire has spread throughout the building.

“There’s a lot of fire damage throughout the structure inside, and sections of the roof are burned. So that never bodes well.”
