A three-alarm fire tore through a restaurant in Scarborough on Monday night, causing the roof to collapse, according to Toronto fire. 

The call came in to Toronto Fire Services just after 8 p.m. from Best Kabob and Karahi on Markham Road near the corner of Eglinton Avenue East.

Crews arrived on the scene to smoke pouring out of the building, and the fire was immediately upgraded to a two-alarm, said Toronto Fire Capt. Adrian Ratushniak.

He said at the moment the fire moved to the roof of the building it was upgraded again to a three-alarm blaze.

It was unclear whether anyone was in the building at the start of the fire, but there have been no injuries reported, Ratushniak said.
