Yellow tape lines the front of Pino's Restaurant early Thursday morning.

At 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, an explosion at West Atlantic Street's Pino's Pizza left three people injured, one reportedly suffering from second-degree burns. The three injured were transported to VCU Medical Center.

Responders to the scene said ceiling tiles in the restaurant were blown out by the blast, and the explosion damaged the ceiling at a shop next door.

The cause of the blast is under investigation.
