DeKalb County Fire Battalion Chief William Roberts says that when firefighters first arrived, their first concern was whether or not anyone was trapped beneath the wreckage of what he called the restaurant's parapet.

Crews broke up sections of the debris looking for people, but found none.

DeKalb County building inspectors were on the scene a short time afterwards, investigating the incident.

No injuries were reported.
