A fire has ravaged a beloved Coney Island pizzeria, causing extensive damage to the 85-year-old business and tourist destination. The fire department says the blaze at Totonno's broke out between the roof and ceiling around 8:45 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities say three firefighters suffered minor injuries.

Totonno's is known for its delicious, Napolitano-style pizza, made in a coal-burning oven. Pizza connoisseurs consider it some of the best thin-crust pie in the city.

It's unclear what caused the fire and when Totonno's will reopen.
