This afternoon, a large blaze engulfed the second-floor of the Dinkytown building that houses Espresso Royale.

According to the Minnesota Daily, the fire started about 12:45 p.m. Thankfully, nobody was inside the apartments on the second floor of the building when it went up in flames. The fire's cause isn't known at this point.

Here's some photos shared by onlookers:

U of M junior Faith Garrington told the Daily she smelled smoke when leaving her apartment and called the fire department.

"The flames were coming out of the window when I was coming out," she said.
