    A popular restaurant suffered extensive damage after a fire early Friday in west suburban Naperville.

    Officials received a call from a passerby reporting lots of smoke coming out of the building at 450 E. Ogden Ave. around 2:15 a.m., according to a release from the Naperville Fire Department.

    A crew arrived within 6 minutes and found heavy black smoke and fire coming from the back of the single-story restaurant called Grandma Sally’s Waffle & Pancake House.

    Fire Chief Mark Puknaitis said roughly 50 firefighters responded to the scene and several neighboring agencies were called in to assist in the blaze as crews began a “defensive fire attack.”

    No injuries were reported in the blaze but damage to the building is estimated to be around $400,000, officials said.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation.
