Overnight fire destroys Tequila's Mexican Restaurant in Golden

GOLDEN, Colo. - A Golden Mexican food restaurant was destroyed by a fire early Sunday morning.

Police said Tequila's Mexican Restaurant on South Golden Road caught fire around 1:20 a.m.

When firefighters arrived, the building was completely engulfed in flames, said Golden Fire spokeswoman Karlyn Tilley.

The fire was centered in the roof, Tilley said, preventing firefighters from trying to fight the fire from the inside.

"Crews had to cut through the building with chainsaws to try to access the areas on fire," Tilley said in a news release.

It took several hours before the fire was completely extinguished.

Tilley said the cause of the fire is unknown and it will likely be several days before investigators can get inside to search for a cause.

No one was injured by the fire.
