Firefighters spent two hours battling a Monday night blaze that engulfed an old Coca-Cola bottling plant in Lexington.

There were no injuries.The fire started about 5:16 p.m. and was fully involved when firefighters arrived, said Chief William Deal of the Lexington Fire Department.

He said the plant had been used to store furniture from a store next door.

Although the fire was extinguished, officials were still on the scene at 9:40 p.m. Monday mopping up hot spots.

Officials have not determined how the fire started.

The investigation is continuing.

``The contents in the building are a total loss,' Deal said. ``But the original structure itself survived the fire.'

Deal said two adjoining parts of the building were damaged by the blaze.

Officials don't have a damage estimate.
