The South Boston location of a popular local burger chain shut down Friday after an early morning fire caused thousands in damage.

Firefighters with the Boston Fire Department responded to the Tasty Burger restaurant on L Street around 1:40 a.m.

The department said the cause of the fire is still under investigation and the blaze left behind about $150,000 in damage.

“Due to the damage, Tasty Burger Southie will be closed until further notice,” the Boston restaurant said in a statement.

Fire officials said no one was injured in the fire.

“We do not know the cause of the fire at this time, as we were closed for business and no one was in the building,” Tasty Burger said in the statement. “Most importantly, and our biggest concern right now, is that no one was hurt, and we are truly grateful for this. Additionally, the adjacent buildings were not damaged. Our gratitude goes out to the Boston Fire Department, who responded quickly to the fire, and to the Boston Police Department who aided the response.”
