Denver Fire said the fire was located at a plant at 4920 Washington St. and that no injuries had been reported.

At a 1:25 p.m. news conference, a Denver Fire lieutenant said the fire was fully extinguished and that most of the flames were contained to vehicles in the yard, and not the plant's main building.
