DENVER (AP) – A fire that started in a construction truck has damaged an overhanging awning on Denver’s historic Union Station.

The fire broke out by the LoDo landmark late Friday morning and firefighters were able to respond quickly.

It put out a lot of smoke for a short time and so far there’s no word on a cause.

No injuries were reported.

Construction workers were evacuated from the station, which was built in 1881 and is being renovated as a hotel.

The renovations are part of a project to turn the station and immediate area into a transportation hub served by Amtrak and RTD light rail and buses.
