Three Texas firefighters have been slightly hurt battling a blaze at a restaurant in the Lake Travis area.

The Austin Fire Department says the fire broke out around 3 a.m. Tuesday in the attic of Los Pinos, at a time when the Mexican restaurant was closed.

Battalion Chief Thayer Smith says two Lake Travis firefighters were hurt when part of the ceiling collapsed. Smith told The Associated Press that both made it out of the building on their own with non-life threatening injuries. They were transported to a hospital to be checked.

Smith says another Lake Travis firefighter suffered a minor hand injury later and was treated at the scene.

The cause of the blaze is sought. Smith did not immediately have details on how the fire had been reported.
