ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — St. Pete Fire Rescue crews battled a huge fire Friday morning at Tsunami Japanese Steakhouse.

According to officials, there are no injuries reported.

Officials said they expect the restaurant on Tyrone Boulevard to be a total loss. Crews said they were inside but moved to fight the fire from the outside after it grew too big.

Tyrone Boulevard was closed in both directions near the steakhouse for several hours. St. Pete Police said it reopened to traffic shortly after 12 p.m.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Fire units will remain on scene until tonight and possibly early morning to ensure no fire or smoke start again.
