GWINNETT COUNTY, GA (CBS46) – Firefighters were called to Backstreet Eatery Bar & Grill in downtown Duluth this morning. When crews arrived, the structure had heavy smoke rolling from the top of the building.

The fire attack team saw flames in two separate areas of the restaurant and moved quickly to bring them under control. A search team ensured the basement area did not have any victims while the fire was being extinguished.

Officers from the Duluth Police Department helped firefighters evacuate the adjacent businesses.

Investigators determined the cause of the fire to be accidental. No injuries were reported.
