Early Tuesday morning, firefighters were dispatched to battle a large fire in West Dallas, which eventually destroyed a structure near a local art installation, reported Fox News.

The fire was sparked in a reportedly vacant building off Sylvan Avenue, near Singleton Boulevard. The building was connected to The Fabrication Yard, the free and legal art park which invites skilled and practicing graffiti artists to paint in areas of the park and building.

The Fabrication Yard, also called the Graffiti Park, is “an abandoned warehouse where graffiti artists can have free reign with their artistic expression. Created as a way to help limit illegal graffiti throughout the city, the Fabrication Yard is ever-evolving art, with original displays changing weekly as new artists come out to showcase their skills.”

One local Dallas resident who seemingly watched the blaze tweeted about it at 1:34 a.m.

No one was reported to have been injured in the fire, but the building was to be completely destroyed.

The cause of the fire is unknown at present but an investigation is underway.
