Los Angeles County firefighters mop up a fire at BeauRivage Restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

Los Angeles County firefighters have knocked down a fire at a Malibu restaurant and all but one lane of Pacific Coast Highway remain closed indefinitely in both directions, sheriff’s officials say.

A “heavy fire” broke out in the second floor attic of BeauRivage Restaurant on the 26000 block of PCH just after 6 a.m. this morning, according to county Fire Inspector Brian Riley. He said there are no reports of injury or evacuation, and officials knocked the fire down, but they remain on the scene to inspect the building.

The restaurant stands near the corner of PCH and Corral Canyon Road, and Riley said that as of 7:21 a.m. only one lane on the northbound side of the road has been opened.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials are urging commuters to avoid the area and use alternate routes.
