One of Mississauga’s most popular all-you-can-eat sushi joints has been completely gutted by an early morning two-alarm blaze that fire crews believe started in the restaurant’s kitchen area.

At 6:11 a.m. this morning, Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services was called to the fire, which has also affected other units in the Hurontario St. and Bristol Rd. plaza. According to Mississauga Fire, eight trucks attended the fire, along with three support vehicles, a command team and 35 firefighters.

“It started at the Heart Sushi, we believe in the kitchen area. Inspectors are on scene now,” says Platoon Chief Daniel Ennamorato.

No injuries have been reported in connection with the fire.

“The restaurant is completely gutted and the roof has been affected,” says Ennamorato, who added that two other restaurants and a bank were also hit.

The other affected establishments include Bombay Chopsticks and Naan Kabob. A CIBC bank has been been temporarily closed as a result of the blaze, but should reopen this morning.

Ennamorato says the cause of the fire is not known at this time and is currently under investigation.

The blaze has not been deemed suspicious.

“It doesn’t look suspicious,” he says.

The fire has caused up to $500,000 in damages.
