CAIRO, IL (KFVS) - Fire crews were still on the scene midday at a  business fire in Cairo. 

Firefighters says the call came in around 4:54 a.m. to Mack's Restaurant on Route 51. 

Cairo Fire Department chief John Meyer says the outside of the building did not sustain much damage, but the inside of the restaurant has extensive heat, smoke and water damage. The chief says the building is salvageable. 

Route 51 was shut down for a time to restrict traffic from the area. 

Mounds, Mound City, and Cairo Auxiliary fire departments were called in to assist Cairo in battling the blaze. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation and the State Fire Marshal has been called to the scene. 

No one was hurt.
