Pierce County firefighters quickly knocked down a two-alarm fire at a downtown Puyallup restaurant Sunday.

It happened around noon at the Meridian Cafe in the 200 block of North Meridian Street.

Customers were in the restaurant. Police say everyone got out safely.

Officials at the scene say there was construction work occurring on the roof when the fire happened. The fire was limited mainly to the ceiling and roof, but there is likely smoke and water damage in the cafe.

The restaurant does not have sprinklers.

Meridian and Stewart Avenue were both closed near the scene for the response.
