PHOENIX – An after-hours fire damaged Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria in east Phoenix late Wednesday, fire officials said.

The small blaze at the takeout- and delivery-only site at 56th Street and Indian School Road started inside a wall in the back, Capt. Todd Kelly of the Phoenix Fire Department said in an email.

Crews responding to reports of smoke at the Arcadia neighborhood restaurant arrived around 10:30 p.m., about half an hour after the restaurant closed.

Firefighters found the source and were able to keep the flames from spreading to the restaurant next door.

No injuries were reported.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.

The popular Chicago-based Malnati’s chain has four locations in the Valley, three of them full service. The small carryout site opened in September 2017.

No other details were immediately available.
