BRECKENRIDGE – A bed and breakfast worth at least $1 million dollar caught fire on Tuesday afternoon after a gas line ignited.

According to the Red, White and Blue Fire Protection District, the building caught fire around 1:30 p.m. at 1005 Four O'Clock Road in Breckenridge.

Firefighters say a gas line had pulled from the outside of the building and ignited. Since it was a live gas line, it continually fed the flames until fire crews were able to shut it off.

Authorities say the fire was out by 2:45 p.m., but firefighters were still conducting mop-up operations.

Another home next store was threatened by the fire, but crews were able to keep the flames from spreading.

No injuries were reported and authorities say it appears the building was empty at the time the fire began.

The exact cause of the problem with the gas line is still under investigation.

The extent of damage to the building is unknown, but many of the homes in that area are worth at least $1 million.
