MFB firefighters have been dispatched to a restaurant fire in Clayton Road, Clayton, following a call to triple-zero.

The callers stated the fire was in the kitchen and had possibly spread into the roof above. 

Upon arrival crews quickly isolated the fire and prevented it from spreading further into the residential apartments above. 

A substantial overhaul was required due to the fire spreading from the industrial rangehood above the cookers and through the ducting system to the exhause flue. 

Several employees and customers evacuated from the restaurant and fortunately no injuries were sustained. 

At this stage it's believed the fire was caused by a build up of cooking residue within the rangehood and the associated ducting up to the roof space. 

Council health inspectors will attend tomorrow.
