A coffee roasting facility operated by Boyer’s Coffee in Denver, CO was declared a loss after a fire Tuesday afternoon, according to local fire officials. 

Dispatched to the Washington Street site at 1:47 p.m., firefighters observed light smoke coming from the structure, Adams County Fire & Rescue said in a post on its Facebook page. Workers evacuated the site. 

“Conditions quickly changed, and our crews determined it was unsafe to stay inside, and went into a defensive strategy,” the fire department said. “Fire escalated quickly and unfortunately the building is a total loss.”

An investigation into the blaze is ongoing. Some fire personnel remained on scene into Wednesday morning to douse hot spots. No injuries were logged during the incident. 

“While our building burned yesterday, our company did not. Although this was a setback, we’ll continue to provide Rocky Mountain roasted coffee and more importantly, community, for years to come,” Boyer’s Coffee said in a statement posted on Facebook. 

Company officials told a Denver-based CBS News affiliate that it plans to rebuild the facility. 

News reports and statements from officials did not offer details on what might have caused the fire to ignite.
