DENVER (CBS4) – Police in Denver are investigating whether a marijuana grow operation that burned Friday night was legal.

The fire broke out just after 10 p.m. on Brighton Boulevard. It happened inside a large warehouse. The building contained several rooms of marijuana plants.

Denver fire says employees inside the building called 911 when the fire broke out.

“The fire was confined to the room of origin, which was a marijuana grow operation. The fire appears to be electrical in origin, however that’s still under investigation,” Denver Police Assistant Chief Todd Hamilton said.

Police are investigating whether the marijuana grow operation was allowed inside that warehouse.

    Firefighters probably enjoyed this fire, which was confined to just one room, and mostly consumed high-quality medicinal cannabis.

    The fire occurred at “cannabis-cultivation facility” (a so-called “optional premises grow licensee” of a local “Medical Marijuana Center”, a legal business under State law), NOT at a “marijuana grow-house”, which insinuates that it was illicit.
