According to the fire department, two alarm fires, such as smoke at 3315 Walnut St., burned from the roof of the building. Fire officials reported the fire on Twitter at around 6:10 pm.
Captain Greg Pixley, a spokesman for the fire department, said there were no reports of injuries.
According to the National Meteorological Service, winds reached 30 mph in Denver when the fire broke out.
Gusts increased the risk of fire and also raised concerns about the flames spreading to other buildings, Pixley said. By about 7 pm, some of the two-alarm fire response units had been released from the scene and other firefighters continued to house the warehouse.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
