Traffic was diverted on Murfreesboro Pike in south Nashville following a restaurant fire early Tuesday morning.

Firefighters were called to Remas Restaurant and Coffee Shop located at 895 Murfreesboro Pike across Wilhagan Road, just before 6:30 a.m.

Heavy smoke was reported by the first crews on site.

Authorities said the fire appears to be electrical and began in the kitchen area and spread into the attic.

There was no one in the building at the time and no one injured.

Fire officials said the owner was at the restaurant until 5 a.m.

Outbound traffic on Murfreesboro Pike was impacted for about two hours.  The road has since reopened.

Inbound traffic into Nashville was unaffected.
