Emergency crews are on the scene of a fire in downtown Regina Wednesday morning.
Smoke and flames can be seen pouring out of Lang’s Cafe on Broad Street just north of Saskatchewan Drive.
Fire Marshal Randy Ryba said they received word of the blaze at 5:51 a.m. and to their knowledge no one was in the building.
Ryba said as of 7:00 a.m. crews are still trying to contain the fire and protect neighboring buildings.
Police have Broad Street closed between 11th Avenue and Saskatchewan Drive with the expectation it will be like that for most of the day as firefighters try to bring the blaze under control and protect neighboring buildings.

There is no word on what may have started the fire.
Lang’s Cafe has been a fixture in downtown Regina for over 30 years.
