Fire officials are investigating the cause of a fire at an Augusta creamery early this morning.
Augusta-Bridge Creek firefighters were called to the Brookside Creamery shortly after 8 this morning.
Mutual aide was requested from Fall Creek and Osseo fire departments.
It took an hour to contain the the fire which firefighters think began on the first floor.
"We believe the fire started when an employee was cutting something with a torch and caught the floor on fire, but at this point that's just speculation. It then spread into the attic area," Augusta-Bridge Creek Fire Chief Ken Zich said.
The fire was contained to the north side of the building, with most of the damage sustained on the upper level.
No one was injured in the fire and exact damage estimates are still unknown.
