NIWOT, Colo. (CBS4) – Investigators believe spilled gasoline ignited on a work light sparked a fire that destroyed a building in Niwot on Friday.

The maintenance building is located on the Sombrero Ranch just west of Highway 287. Propane and oxygen tanks inside the building had exploded. The hot fire kept crews away for a while.

Everyone inside escaped unharmed.

The damage is estimated at $120,000.
