LONGMONT, Colo. — As of Friday morning, investigators were still looking into the cause of a 2-alarm fire that was ignited and knocked down in Longmont late Thursday night.

The fire was reported at an apartment complex at 1322 South Coffman Street around 9:15 p.m., with investigators estimating that the origin point of the fire was somewhere in the north third of the building.

As they battled the blaze, firefighters were urged to use caution, as it appeared the roof could collapse at any moment. Thankfully none of the 25 residents displaced by the fire nor any of the crew members battling it were injured, according to Longmont dispatchers.

While flames were still visible as of 10 p.m., fire crews confirmed that the blaze was under control at that time. However, as of early Friday morning, investigators had still yet to the determine the exact cause.

The building is being considered a total loss.
