DENVER — The Turin Bike Shop building at 7th and Lincoln just outside Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood caught fire Wednesday afternoon.

Flames and smoke tore through the rooftop of the vacant building, which sits right across the street from Denver7's offices at Lincoln and Speer.

The fire was first reported around 4 p.m. and was quickly extinguished after Denver Fire arrived on scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. No other details were released.

Turin was a Denver icon for decades, operating for more than 50 years before closing its doors in the spring of 2022. The building's windows have since been boarded up.

Developers at the time had announced plans for an 18-story residential and retail building to replace it.
