A restaurant in the Whites Creek area was seriously damaged by fire early Tuesday morning.

The blaze broke out Blarney Stone Pub and Grill in the 5400 block of Clarksville Highway off Old Hickory Boulevard.

Officials said the building sustained extensive damage and are investigating the cause of the blaze.

Larry Gilbert with the Nashville Fire Department told Nashville's News 2 they were able to control the fire in a short amount of time.

Gilbert explained, “The Flames were coming through the roof in the center part of the building.  It appears that there [are] two businesses there, but I know that the one on the other end looks like it was closed.”

He continued, “I'm not sure about the bar and grill, whether it was open or not, but it appears that's where the fire started from.”

According to officials, no one was injured.

They plan to investigate later Tuesday.
