AUSTIN (KXAN) — There was no damage to the Colorado Tower after reports of a fire at the Red Ash Italia restaurant in downtown Austin on Monday evening, according to Cousins Properties.
Around 6:30 p.m., a fire was reported in the restaurant, which is located on the ground floor of Colorado Tower, Cousins said.
AFD said at the time firefighters were working to extinguish the fire and remove smoke in a 30-story high-rise building at 303 Colorado Street.
“The fire was in the ductwork between the stove and an exterior exhaust vent coming from a restaurant. We have no damage estimate but building representatives and remediation crews were already working on repairs,” the Austin Fire Department said Tuesday.
There were no injuries in the fire, and the security team and firefighters safely evacuated the entire building, according to Cousins. Furthermore, there was no damage to the building, and all offices can open Tuesday.
