A Naperville restaurant is open for business and serving food just hours after firefighters put out a fire on the roof.

Naperville firefighters said they were dispatched at four minutes before noon to Rosebud, 22 E. Chicago Ave. after getting a report from someone who smelled smoke.

The fire department responded by sending 13 firefighters to the scene, with the first unit arriving at 12:01 p.m.

After extending a ladder to the roof, they found a fire burning on a small area of the roof.

Firefighters said all employees and patrons evacuated the restaurant without incident.

Fire personnel worked for 45 minutes to fight the fire, extinguishing it within the roof covering.

One firefighter received a minor injury but did not require hospital treatment.

There were no injuries to civilians.

A building inspector from the Naperville Department of Transportation, Engineering and Development responded to the scene to provide structural inspection of the building and declared the building closed until the Health Department responded and repairs were made to the roof.

Fire Investigators from the Naperville Fire Department remained on the scene investigating the cause of the fire.

By the evening, however, after repairs were made to the roof, the restaurant reopened, firefighters said.

The fire department said there was very minor water damage.

Damage is estimated at $100,000.
