SYCAMORE – Firefighters were investigating the cause of a small fire on the roof of Tom & Jerry’s on Friday.

Firefighters were on the restaurant’s roof Friday about 5 p.m., looking at one of the neon lights that encircle the top of Tom & Jerry’s, 1670 DeKalb Ave. Assistant Fire Chief Marc Doty said the fire was mostly extinguished when they got there.

Patrons and customers inside the restaurant were evacuated as the fire filled the main area with smoke. No one was injured.

Firefighters and police officers from DeKalb, Genoa-Kingston and Cortland also responded to the fire.

Drivers heading northbound were directed around the scene by going through the median of DeKalb Avenue, from the Mercantile Drive/Edgebrook Lane intersection to McDonald’s, 1660 DeKalb Ave.
