Fire crews were called to a fire at Los Rancheritos Restaurant in Kewanee, Ill., around 3:45 a.m., Sunday morning, July 28, 2013.

When crews arrived, they found heavy smoke and flames coming from the rear third of the building.

According to Fire Chief Paul Schaecher, the structures roof had already burned through and had partially collapsed.

High flames, heavy smoke and a partially collapsed roof made it difficult to enter the building and the city's Ladder Truck was called in to aide with operations.  

Chief Schaecher says crews were able to get the fire under control in around 40 minutes but remained on the scene until 7:15 am to check for hot spots and to make sure the fire was completely out.

The fire continues to be investigated, as a cause has yet to be determined.
