DENVER — Adams County Fire Rescue is battling a fire that broke out Monday morning at an abandoned building along Federal Boulevard.

Shortly before 9 a.m., firefighters were called to the area of Federal Boulevard and West 60th Avenue, which is just north of Interstate 76, a tweet from the agency says. 

No one was believed to be inside the building, the tweet says. An arson investigator has been called to the scene. 

Southbound Federal Blvd is closed in the area as firefighters continue clean up efforts. 

Crews with the Westminster Fire Department and Federal Heights Fire Department are also on scene helping with the firefighting effort. 

Smoke from the fire was visible throughout much of the Denver metro area for a time Monday morning. An investigation is ongoing.
