A massive fire has destroyed a section of the bleachers at the Empower Stadium at Mile High in Denver, the home of the NFL’s Broncos.

The blaze which broke out on Thursday has been extinguished, according to the Denver Fire Department. The cause remains unclear and no injuries have been reported.

‘Fire now under control at Mile high Stadium,’ read a DFD tweet, using the name of the stadium’s predecessor. 

‘Sprinklers attempted to stop the fire, but firefighters were needed to complete extinguishment. Heavy fire & smoke was found on our arrival media briefing to take place at 3:00 p.m. on east side of stadium.’

The fire appeared to break out in a section of the stadium with luxury boxes and rows of seats in that section.

Pictures from the scene show flames overtaking several rows of seating in front of some private suites. Black smoke from the blaze could be seen from miles away.

The stadium appears to have suffered significant damage from smoke.

Workers were evacuated from the premises according to Mike Klis, who covers the team for Denver’s Channel 9.

Team spokespeople did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

The stadium was completed in 2001 to replace the Broncos’ old Mile High Stadium, which was a half-century old by the time it was deconstructed.
