A fire at the Tang Dynasty restaurant is under investigation.

Fire investigators say it was set intentionally. 

Fresno fire fighters responded just before 4 a.m. to the restaurant located on Shaw near West. 

Seven fire trucks were at the scene battling multiple fires in the building. 

The sprinkler system kept the flames from spreading.

"Two fires. One was set in the kitchen area where it looked like cooking and other things go on and the second was more in a storage area," said  Robert Castillo, Fresno Fire Department.

It appears the restaurant was also broken into.

An undisclosed amount of cash is now missing from the restaurant.
