Firefighters from multiple departments were first called to the restaurant around 1 a.m. Monday morning on Mountain View Drive, near the Home Depot. The restaurant is also close to the old Century III Mall.

The restaurant’s website says it is open Sunday nights until midnight, which is only about an hour before the fire started. The West Mifflin Fire Chief told Channel 11 Breaking News Desk Anchor Jennifer Tomazic that no one was hurt.

Chief Jeffrey Youkers with the Skyview Volunteer Fire Company told Channel 11 crews initially struggled to find the fire inside due to it being in the ceiling in the dining area, but said they were able to get the flames contained in less than an hour.

He said this particular building has been renovated many times over the years as various restaurants moved in and out so one of the affected areas was a large void space in the ceiling.

The Allegheny County Fire Marshal is investigating.

We reached out to Buffalo Wild Wings for comment and have not heard back.
