BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - A late night fire forces a Lowcountry business to close their doors.

Beaufort firefighters were called out to the Mizu Japanese Restaurant in Beaufort around midnight after someone spotted smoke coming from the building. Firefighters say the fire was between the roof and the ceiling.

Firefighters from a number of local departments responded and they were able to contain it before it spread.

The Beaufort County Fire Scene Investigation team is still investigating the cause.
