Omaha firefighters battle a fire at Tasty Pizza, located at 5423 Leavenworth St on Friday.

Smoke could be seen from the roof when firefighters arrived, and flames went through the roof after a ventilation hole was cut, he said.

No one was in the building at the time of the fire, which was under control after about 25 minutes.

The location is currently closed to the public. An employee was last inside the building about noon Friday, Main said.

The fire is believed to have started in the attic. The cause is under investigation.

Investigators estimated the building suffered $75,000 in damage, according to a report from the Omaha Fire Department. A damage estimate for the contents of the building, valued at an estimated $79,950, was unknown.

Tasty Pizza, known for its homemade crust, traditional pies and specialties, opened a second location at 60th Street and Woolworth Avenue in the fall of 2020.
