Fire damages part of Coors facility in Colorado


GOLDEN, Colo. (News Nation/KDVR) — Emergency responders were on the scene of a fire Thursday at the Coors facility in Golden.

Fire officials told News Nation affiliate KDVR the flames began on a wooden deck on top of a 16-story tall section of the building.

The building where the flames are burning is just a shell, meaning it is empty inside with no production or business taking place.

The fire, which started around 11:30 a.m., was contained by 12:30 p.m. and did not spread to any other sections of the building.

Sixty firefighters from five agencies, Fairmont, Pleasantview, Golden, West Metro and Arvada, were on the scene.

“Our first priority is the safety of our people, so thankfully the fire was contained to a malt house that has been shuttered for quite some time and no employees were harmed. Local fire departments have contained the fire, and we are coordinating with them on safely returning people to their workspaces,” a statement from Coors said.

No injuries were reported.
