Flames shot from the roof of Casale DiMaggio Sicilian Restaurant after closing Wednesday night leaving the Bucks County eatery appearing to be badly damaged.

Firefighters rushed to the restaurant on Dublin Pike in the Perkasie area around 11 p.m. to find the building on fire. It took crews more than an hour to knock down the flames and bring the fire under control, Emergency Alerts of Southeastern Pennsylvania, which shared photos and videos of the scene with NBC10, said.

Firefighters from other parts of upper Bucks County and equipment were brought in to battle the blaze. The fire left the building charred and visibly damaged.

Luckily, no one was hurt as the restaurant was closed at the time. The Sicilian-style family eatery, which features pizza, pasta and other food, closes at 9 p.m. on Wednesdays, according to its website.

On Friday, the restaurant expressed thanks to "the love and support our community" and the first responders in a Facebook post.

"We are planning to rebuild and remain apart of this community," the eatery wrote.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
