Milan firefighters are investigating a fire at Jim's Pizza Box.
"The building sustained severe interior damage but no structural damage," Milan Township fire Chief Brian Rospert said.
Crews were dispatched to the area at about 2 a.m. after receiving a report of smoke coming from the building. They arrived to find heavy smoke and entered to find a working fire.

Three occupants who live in apartments above the Pizza Box all escaped without injuries.
Milan requested assistance from Norwalk and Huron fire departments, putting a total of 34 firefighters at the scene. They knocked down the fire within an hour, Rospert said.
The cause is not suspicious, Rospert said, but he has asked for assistance from the Ohio State Fire Marshal.
